..... 5th July .......
 
......so first day of orientation in CT, we jus started to run through all the sports in more detail to what we are goin to coach and exactly how everything should be presented!!.....

.... this is the day we were working from 9-8 out on the field in 106 degree heats when the weather was saying 100 degrees in extreme so dnt go outside unless absolutly necessary lol!!!......... this is the day i got realy realy realy burnt!! i was red raw and like a lobster..... also on this day i grazed both of my knees badly and they were realy sore with sweat and suncream running into them.......

...... 6th July ......
 
.........So we began the second day of orientation in CT by bwing shown all the different squirts sessions and games we could have......... this was lots of fun acting like a 3 year old!!!.........

...... Lunch time approached and all the management staff put us into groups of three and sed after dinner in half an hour you are goin to coach as session to a group!!!....... i got put into a group with Ian (scottish) and Connor (irish), we got the sport of scatch to teach.... so because of our nationalities i felt obliged to crack an english, irish, scotsman joke.... we said!!! " so whats an englishman, irish man and a scotsman doin in america?.... (pause)... dunno......(ANSWER) coaching you guys scatch of course....!!! hahaha it was so cheesy but loved it hahaha.... we did our session and got realy good feedback so this was awesome and we had a gr8 time :).........


....... 7th July .......

.......SO.... the big day has arrived to which we are being assessed coaching actual children from the local area....... this was very tense because all coaches had to try and work together to organise camp ensure enough equipment went and ensure it ran smoothly whilst also delivering an awesome session to the kids so we ensure we stay in america to coach!!!.........

...... for my session i started off by having to teach american football........ which started off to be a knightmare as the kids cudn't pu the flags aorund their waste but the rest of it ran smoothly without problem!!! so i was happy but wen i recieved my feedback it was even beta because i got gr8 comments!! :) ............

....... after a gr88888 first lesson it came time for me to do my squirts session which i was most nervous about because ive had no experience of coachin that young of age.... but because of the heat it turns out im only having to coach my fellow coaches who are goin to act like 2-5 year olds!!!!.......... again being nervous i wasn;'t confident in how i was doin but another gr8 feedback helped me get the confidence ready to begin camp!!! and do an absolutly awesome job!!!..........
