I coach a youth lacrosse team from my hometown. This is my 5th year doing it and I have a love-hate relationship with it; about 75:25. I love teaching them something and then seeing them do it on the field successfully. I love when they’re excited to play, when they score a goal, when they make a great assist, when they intercept a pass or stop a goal. When they do well, it’s worth all of the time driving to practices and games all over eastern Mass 6 days a week. It’s worth putting up with chatty 7th and 8th graders during practice. It’s also worth it because I get practice too – I love to bake for them.
