The year of coaching is pretty much done, and I have to say it was one of the most challenging, exciting, rewarding and enjoyable years I’ve had in volleyball. Being able to coach so many kids around Victoria at so many different levels has been such a thrill. For the most part it was a very successful year for the majority of teams that I coached.

Since my last post the Girls season at St Michaels has finished and we made the grand finals in five or the six competitions we were in, 7A, 7B, 8A, 9A and 9B, winning every final we played in for five championships! The Open girls (year 10-12) have started their season and will finish it in first term next year. We have had a tough start to the season but with some more training I’m confident we will improve rapidly.

At Billanook College we played in the Open Boys Honours Division at the National Schools Cup in Melbourne in December. We had been training once a week since Victorian Schools Cup for this event. Like all teams our preparation was interrupted by exams and schoolies week but we went to the event feeling good about our chances. Unfortunately though, we never really hit our straps throughout the week. At times we played some very good volleyball, but couldn’t put many matches together at a good level. While we finished a solid 3rd place in Australia there was a lot of disappointment amongst our team, something that I really hope will drive us to get better for another run at the championship next year.

The under 17 boys at Billanook were another story though. We did our preparation together every week from July and they really carried that through to Nationals and won gold after dropping their first 2 games of the event. Winning every game after the first 2 was a great effort and something we can be very proud of.

During the holidays I am coaching a number of teams for the National Junior Beach Volleyball Championships that are held in Perth in early January 2011. I’m pretty confident that they will be bringing home a number of medals. Go VICS!

 

On the beach, the 2010-11 season has started and is 3 events in. I played the first 2 events with Cedric for one first and one second place, then one event with Chris Burns where we came second.

The life of people, always has to avoid ups. Not always such as sun dongsheng, also won't always was painful. Repeated a float a heavy, to a person, it is tested. Therefore, float on it, and don't have to pride; Under the sink in, don't need more pessimistic. Must be blunt, modest attitude, optimistic and enterprising, forward.

Happiness is accompanied by sorrow, and the rain should have the clear sky. If rain remains after rain and sorrow remains after sorrow if. Please let us face this calmly leave after the departure. Smiles and it is impossible to find one of you!

Every failure, is a successful start; every test, there is a harvest; tears, there is a wake up; every ordeal, has a life of wealth. Every pain, are the backbone of growth. Every blow is strong backing; alive will go through some setbacks, we remain strong and to overcome every setback in this world, you are exhausted to life!

Not every one seed can grow into a tree, and not every flower can bear fruit. Similarly, not everyone enjoy a perfect life, not every heart can get quiet, nor is every emotion can be into eternity. Defects, is a normal, should frankly face the existence of

Never go to envy the lives of others, even if that person looks happy and prosperous. Never judge others whether you are happy, even if that person looks alone. Happy people drinking water and its temperature. You are not me, it turns out I walked the streets, the hearts of pleasure and pain
