I got to see the gummys play some basketball today at their YMCA. I’d like to say they won, but they didn’t. I’d like to say that the score was close, but it wasn’t. Yeh, their team got waxed pretty good. And of course they were feeling pretty bad that they lost so bad but I reminded them that winning and losing isn’t important right now. It was their first year and what was important was working on fundamentals and learning to play as a team. Winning will come in time but they need to focus on those two things for now. That was OK but I think taking them to lunch at the place of their choice helped assuage some of that bitter taste from losing. Ice cream helped too I think.
I think I’ll get them a couple Size 5 basketballs and show them a few drills that I learned when I was a kid.
