Football Will Be The Death Of Me

This year Shaun is finally old enough to play tackle football and I found a new team that is part of a 14 team Pop Warner League in our area.  When I found this league I dove in head first not thinking about all of the work and hours it was going to take to help make this team successful.

Currently I am the head coach for the mitey mite which is for kids that are 7,8,and 9 years old and weigh between 45 lbs and 90 lbs.  Being that this team is new they were looking for volunteers so I have been trying to help in every area that I can.  I have worked on recruiting, registration as well as website redesign.  I work on something football related everyday weather it is for myself or for the team.  Today I spent some time finding CPR classes as well as coaches clinics in the area.  Tomorrow we have a meeting at 7pm.  Since this past Friday today will be the third straight day with tomorrow being the four where I have had something to do for football.  Recently Melinda was lucky enough to be pulled into the madness.  Right now the team is very disorganized and we have a long way to go but I feel in the end we will be successful and a great asset to the community.

Right now I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel but the end is coming and I am really excited to see what unfolds and maybe be able to rest a little.  I guess being a head coach is going to make it hard to relax. Guess I will have to relax after my team makes it to the playoffs.
