I'm a former PD soccer player and now lucky enough to be one of the Middle School Girls coaches. My inspiration comes from my team. We are in the middle of the end of season tournament, and feeling AWESOME after a big win in the opening round! The girls have come a long way this season, and are working harder and harder each day in practice and in games. Today the girls are focused on having a productive practice in preparation to the semifinals on Thursday. My favorite part of being part of this team comes immediately following the pre game coaches' talks. The girls gather without us, huddle up arm in arm and encourage and motivate each other. I can see their competitiveness and their sportsmanship, and right in front of me I see them growing into young women who are leaders. The bonds of our PD family strengthen a little more with each huddle.
