I'm pretty excited about it. It is the 9 and 10 year olds so my oldest does not qualify but I already talked to the manager that asked me to help him and he is all for the 8 year old girls to come and practice against them. It will give the 8 year olds a taste of what to expect and the all-star team a little practice.
The manager and I are on the same page about how we want to coach the girls and it's important to both of us that they have fun because who knows if any of these girls will ever be on all-stars again. I'm really looking forward to it but, of course, it means 3 more weeks of softball....maybe more if we win the first tournament.
