THE COACH’S FAULT? (48)

One segment in our handbook challenged our team with this statement:
“Drills: Coach hitting balls to you? (“That’s what ‘gulls’ like.” Imre Kwast of
Holland).
If the coach teaches you something that’s valuable but you don’t “like it,”
is that the coach’s fault?  If the coach teaches you something valuable but you won’t practice it, is that the coach’s fault?
If the coach lets you do something “comfortable,” is that good coaching
or a waste of practice time?
If the coach shows you something that will work but you can’t do it, is
that the coach’s fault?
The best girls’ teams in our league do the tough things in a match. We
can learn these tough things or lose in the spring. We may lose even if we
try hard, but isn’t that what it’s about?
