I suppose you could say that we are mostly four coaches at cricket. For four grades. That’s a lot of little kids who really don’t know much about cricket for only four coaches to handle. You need to teach every single kid how to bowl, bat, field, throw, catch …. Of course there’s days when we are less. Like today when we started out with just two coaches (later on moved back to four thank goodness)
Now look at this photo (I know it’s a bad photo. I took it with my cellphone miles from the parents) can’t exactly walk up to them and ask them to smile and wave! On the far left you will see a group of moms. Now I have begged them to come help us. To just get the kids to keep focus. Make sure not all of them run after the ball at the same time. They don’t need to know anything. We just need other adults to help keep the children organized.
Nope. They would rather stand there. DO NOTHING and watch us struggle to teach the kids. Huh? Don’t you find it a bit stupid? They are just standing there anyway. Can’t they stand with the kids and get them to keep focus?
