Every time I reach out to parents or they want to meet with me, I feel a sense of dread pours within me. It's sad but true. Most of my most current meetings have been blame the teacher or coach. Yet Friday, I received a very nice email. It was exactly what I needed and then the very next day a request for conference email oozing with indifference and detail, and the dread settles in.
I lectured Cat yesterday on this very thing. When you're under pressure, you raise your chest, think smart and get it done. You tell yourself you are good, smart and capable and you push the pressure away. Our team is playing for City today (four teams left). We won yesterday in three sets. We play the "other" OLG team today at 5. I'm going to video their cheering just so you can see how serious they are. It's amazing to see. I hope our girls can play under pressure. Let's see.
