New Volleyball Head Coach
I, (Mrs Beckham) will be coaching volleyball this year, and I am extremely excited! I have been playing volleyball since I was in second grade–my mom was volleyball coach at Columbus North High School and then at St Peter’s Lutheran in Columbus, IN–where she taught and where I went to school.
I’ve played my whole life…even for a year in college at Concordia University in Nebraska. Then I coached at Wawasee High School when I first was out of college.
So I have years of playing and coaching and lots of experiences to draw from.
I want to first make sure everyone understands my main goal will be for the girls to learn. There are so many lessons athletes learn from participating in sports–positive attitudes, work ethic, teamwork, hustle, perseverance and discipline in practice, and many more.
If our volleyball players can pick up even hints of a few of these lessons, I will be happy! And don’t forget FUN. We will have fun!!
And then of course, volleyball fundamentals. Basic skills that will serve them well if they would like to play in future years.
Our Fall Sports Callout will be this Thursday, August 12 at 4:30p in the gym. And our first practice will be Monday, August 16.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
