Woman Coaching Women
Girls Coaching Girls
Fifteen years ago, Emily coached my daughter swimming. When I see her mother Eleanor at the grocery store, I smile, now, a decade and half later. Sometimes, I still say thanks. I always ask how she’s doing. I still care. Emily is now married with two little girls of her own. I wish for her and her daughters some great upcoming girl coaches.
My daughter taught tennis this summer. Yesterday, Amelia’s mom, Kristin gave her a wonderful thank you. To Kristin, thanks for showing me, someone you don’t know and won’t recognize at the grocery, that you value my daughter’s coaching in Amelia’s life as I have Emily’s.
What a lovely gift to see my daughter through someone else’s eyes. Thank you Kristin.
Girls coaching girls, very powerful.
Full disclosure: My aunt Nancy coached basketball at Pomona. She was the winningest coach in their history.
