My youngest daughter had a game yesterday. A coach from one of the teams known for its active recruiting of talent, approached another dad from our team and gave him a business card for his daughter and mine. A week earlier we were approached by another coach scouting for a select/all-star team for summer. I have a couple of thoughts about all this:
- First of all, my daughter is good, but not great, and I can say this because I have two older players and know what "great" looks like. She's not there yet.
- Second, my daughter is in fifth grade. What if she has a growth spurt that leaves her hopelessly clumsy between now and then?
- Third, it's January. I am just getting back into the schedule for the second half of the regular season - I am not thinking about summer yet.
