We are coaching again next tuesday… That is less than a week from now. Usually I would be full of glee and girly happiness at the prospect however this year I am weighed down by the stress of the knowledge that this year I will be coaching 2 groups of little girls by myself (with a CIT). THe CIT or coach in training is basically just another child to look after however they are useful to fetch equipment and so on… I am honestly petrified at the prospect of having to coach a class alone. In reality, I never signed up for this… It was supposed to be a fun thing to provide a distraction from work and some much needed physical activity. I am not sure how it progressed to the point where I am now almost Level 2 certified which means I am almost ready to coach my own competitive group of 12-16 year olds. I thought this was just supposed to be fun?
It’s not like it isn’t going to be fun, however I could really do without the stress of having to prepare lesson plans and so on that comes along with the coching part. Including testing levels, supervising the CIT and trying to make sure that the little ones don’t hurt themselves.
