Some people should use what they learned in Kindergarten! **Let me rephrase...
So, I'm the coach coordinator for our league. What this means is that I'm a resource. I share drills that I find, encourage others to pass on their own drills to others, support coaches if they need it, etc.
A friend of mine (another coach) came up with the idea of a coaches meeting once a month to share ideas and get to know each other....you know, do a little check-in to see how things are going. Well, I sent it out and the Vice President emails me and says he has had 3 people email/text him wondering why I'm making this mandatory (which I never have) and what my intent is with this.
Okay...#1 Why are they not directing their question to me? Don't do this passive/agressive shit because I'm not down with that. Ask me directly. Had they email/texted me, I would have said "no, of course it isn't. It is just an opportunity to hang out and share ideas" (as I've mentioned in my previous emails).
#2 IF they could go, why not go? I know I don't know eveyrthing and my personality is the type to learn from others and since we have very new coaches, why are they upset that we have an opportunity to learn from others? Also, we draft our teams every year so it's likely that 3/4 of our team will end up on another coaches team so we might as well work with each other for the betterment of the league.
#3 It's an hour on a friday at a mexican restaurant with beer???? Who wouldn't want to go ? hahaha
I'm offering an OPPORTUNITY for people to get together one hour a month (if they want) to come and get to know each other, share ideas, and ask for advice. If they want to go....go. If they don't.....don't. BUT...don't complain about it to someone else when you don't have to go in the first place.
