This year's volleyball season went so fast. They started the game on the first week of March and today will be their last game. Unlike last year, all the games this season was held in Bishop John King Muscio. I liked last season because we got to have the game here in our school but this year was different. Nevertheless, it still fun and it is more intense as they advance in grades.
Our school have two teams, the white and the blue. Our daughter is on the white team. They played against the blue team on the first game. The blue team won but it did not stop the white team from winning some games against the other school's team. So far they have played 7 games, they lost 3 and today will be their last game.
Our daughter got some scrapes and bruises during the last game last week but that's not stopping her from participating on today's game.
She's kind of disappointed that they lost three games but we told her that it is part of playing team sports. She got used to last season where they never experience a loss.
The best deal here is that, she gets to learn lessons such as working together to achieve a common goal and that she gets to experience how it is to handle defeat. In life, you will not win with all your battles but the most important thing to remember is to learn from that experience no matter the outcome is.
The camaraderie in sports is what the most important lesson these young athletes could learn. It is not easy to work in teams but if you want to achieve a common goal, you will learn how to work together.
Next season, they will have to play with the teams that they played last season. This year, they played with the new batch of players from the lower grades. Volleyball is the only sports my daughter love. She never really got interested in other sports which is okay with me because having so many sports at the same time is quite difficult. Volleyball and piano is what she is involved in.
I was looking forward to the Tennis this Spring but the coaches never sent out an info so I am guessing that they did not have it this Spring. We do however play it as a family, we all love playing tennis. We are also doing Jui-Jitsu as a family. We started it this month and so far we are enjoying it. Hubby and I get to do it together and the kids get to do it too. Self defense is something I really want all of us to learn especially the kids. Hopefully, we can stick to it and fully learn it.
