What inspired you to become a coach?

…It’s award ceremony night for Youth Hoops of Indianapolis the spring of 2003. And, our team is ready to receive their Runner Up trophies after winning only one game all season. You see we only had one day of practice and two games a week due to logistics. The girls were between the ages of six and nine years old; for most of them it was their first time playing a team sport. After witnessing each girl crying tears of defeat following our third loss in a row. I made them a challenging promise that if we keep working on the things that our coaches are preaching and teaching. We were going to get trophies once the season was over. The league coordinator had set up a system that placed all four teams in the playoffs and seeded them accordingly by record. Knowing that playoff format we needed to get each girl locked in on us only winning two games to be champions. Because the league would provide a trophy for the Champions and Runners Up there would not be any participation award. So while we may have missed out on reaching our championship team goal; the priceless joy upon the faces of each little girl resonates with me forever.
