I just wanted to toss in a few things..my high school coach is a
great coach. She also coaches summer travel ball, but in a different
age group because of our rules. We do run 3 hour practices almost, and
we work our butts off. We do have a lot of fun, but we stay pretty
intense during the season. Sometimes probably more so than we do during
the summer season since there really aren't any national calibur teams
around here like the ones you guys always are talking about. Then
again, we also do play spring ball at our high school while most of the
teams from other states in our region have changed to a fall season, so
we come straight off of the High school season into summer.
But I just wanted to mention that my hs coach is probably the best coach
I've ever had in ANY sport and has taught me SO much. I think it's just
going to vary from team to team and high school to high school how the
attitude of coaches are...
