in desperation

Okay, kids. I come to you blog-readers in desperation. I have been looking for a second assistant coach for the Central freshman volleyball team for about 3 months now, and I have no leads. (Every other lead has been a dead end.) I figured this is my last-ditch attempt to find someone. If you know ANYONE with 60+ college hours who is looking for an easy J-O-B, please send that person my way. If that person doesn't know a lick about volleyball, trust me, he/she can learn pretty easily. (You can get by just saying a few key phrases. and encouraging the kids...) I just need a warm body in the gym, preferably someone who likes HS kids and can be a great influence on them. :o) The assistant coach pay is pretty good, and you only spend about 2-4 hours in the gym per night.

Sidenote: I have worked with the Central girls all summer, and I have thoroughly enjoyed being around them. They are such good kids and so much fun to be around.

Okay, I am getting off my begging knees now, in order to preserve a small ounce of dignity.


  1. wish it was soccer, and was a boys team...I will keep my ears open for someone for ya.
    Good Luck. the way, I am responding to this from Mizzou.
    next time right?

  2. Mizzou next time for sure! apparently the fair trumps all other events. :o)

    you should probably eat at flatbranch for me while you're up there this time.

  3. I so wish that I could take the position. I would love to coach and I do have experience. However, I am in grad school and have no extra time to coach. Maybe after I get a jobs in the schools I will be able to coach. Good luck and I will keep my ear open for someone.

  4. Update: I had two takers on the coaching gig. People really DO read the blog! (and the one-knee begging probably had a lot to do with it, too...)
