Yesterday, I coached a group of 6 young kids at a youth league tennis. (I see them every Sundays from noon to 1:30.) For this season, it was their last day of class. (Next season, the league will start in mid-January.)
For each student, they are given a report card from me on the last day of class. (Report card is evaluated from coach.) Also, students receive a medal award (similar to an Olympic gold medal wrapped around your neck).
Photo shown below is blank report card.
I only see my students once a week, but a player-coach relationship can form a special bond together.
For instance, a mother asked me, "Can I take a picture of you with my daughter?"
(This happened after the report card and medal was given to students. Remember, it was the last day of class. Possibly, my student talks to her mother about me.)
I felt touched. (I have started this coaching job, since October 19.) As of now, she is my first ever student to take a picture with me as a coach.
