Coach "I wonder" just what is a coach

Ok. I have a question that I really need to be answered and you girls
softball coaches, and parents out there could be most helpfull. Tell
me, is a coach one who developes his player throughout the year, wins
some "HARDWARE" teaches the girls skills that allow them to go to the
next level of play and, who knows, maybe even be able to make that same
coache's team when he puts one together the next season. Or, is a coach
one who drafts girls, even an entire new team, for a particular
position that another coach took the time to train and develope, uses
them for the entire year and not pass on to the players the skills
necessary to be able to compete the next season at an even higher level
of play. I ask this question because after a very successfull year for
our team of 14yr olds some of us parents look back and see a box of
trophys but an empty feeling as to what it all was for. If it was only
to win(A)trophys and tourneys and boost egos then it was a success if
it was to develope and improve the skills of our future players then we
failed.  I await to see what tranpires as I have see the storm 14U
coach that needed a pitcher thread and it went way off topic. I do take
the blame for my blindness in falling for this short term payoff of a
$5 piece of
plastic.
