Spring Sports

March 12, 2014

Here we are in the second week of March and we are still wondering whether spring is really going to come this year.  Just last week at this time we were still dealing with a March snowstorm.  Two  years ago we had 80 degree days already.  In just one week it will officially be spring on the calendar but we have no guarantees the weatherman will cooperate.  In less than 3 weeks all spring sports will be scheduled to play.  I wonder if any of them will be ready.

Next week they have a full week of make-up days and the following week is Spring Break.  Every spring coach dreads the two-week spring break decision.  Even though families were told that the first week would be make-up days many of them are leaving town anyway.  This means there will be two weeks of limited practice for all the sports.  As soon as the athletes get back to full school, they are expected to be ready to go in their spring games.

If the weather doesn’t improve quickly, most of the practice will have occurred inside.  You can’t really simulate the outdoor environment, and we know a ball bounces much different on a wooden floor than it does on the ground.  I haven’t found a gymnasium large enough to allow discus practice inside.  Get out your overcoats.  This may be one of those years!
