Coach

This morning I changed it up and hired a yoga instructor to come out and work with my U-16 team for our Saturday morning practice. The experience exceeded all expectations, the kids seemed really engaged and a few were genuinely excited about continuing on their own. The yogi was a 6 foot tall cajun man named James and he did a really good job of managing a group of 15-16 year olds.

Here was one of the more entertaining exchanges of the morning as James was walking up to the field:

Player 1: Coach, that is the yoga dude?!? He is huge!
Coach: Guys, yoga is for bad asses.
Player 2: That would make a great bumper sticker.
Player 3: I just wish we had more hot girls coming.

I had a number of your players text me over the weekend proclaiming how awesome it was. And all of them said they wanted to continue doing it. Congrats on a well executed plan.
