This will be an interesting season. I am always learning new things about the sport, but this year I will have to make some major adjustments.
Communicating is a combination of what you say, how you say it, and what you do with your body. ALS tests all of these components. My voice is very muddled. Those of you who know me well know I have opinions and like to talk. I can no longer demonstrate drills, even wrecked driving my little scooter over the track getting to the field.
That was kind of funny. (I am in the process of getting a powered wheelchair and a voice assistive device.) How do I coach effectively instead of becoming just a distraction on the sidelines?
I am nervous, yet excited as I take on this challenge. Wish the kids and me luck…mainly the kids as this is about them.
