Our headcount as of today is 45 tickets.  If you plan to go, please give me a tentative headcount ASAP.  You can still request tickets AFTER tomorrow, however, once the pool area fills up you'll be locked out, so the longer you wait to more risk there is that we won't have room for you.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
===========================================================================

"HEY DADS, WE NEED TO TALK" -- by Amanda Scarborough*
 
PART 1
 
Hey Dads,
 
I want you to think for a second about the way you talk to your daughter (or the way your husband talks to your daughter) when she is practicing or playing a game. Is it positive? Is it empowering? Is it in a good tone? Now think for a second more. Are you being honest with yourself and is how you think you are talking to your daughter the actual way? How you are talking to your daughter affects her far more than you know.
 
This subject to me is overly important for many major reasons: I see how some Dads talk to their daughters at lessons/tournaments/clinics, I know the effect my dad had on me personally (for the better), and I have seen the negative consequences from how some dads of friends or acquaintances have effected their lives now that they are in their 20’s and 30’s.
 
To the Dads who sit on a bucket or show up to hitting lessons and have a smile on their face, don’t say a word or give constructive criticism at the right times, THANK YOU. Pat yourselves on the back. YOU are making our sport better and working to make your daughter into a confident young woman. To the Dads who have a yelling issue or cannot speak to their daughter’s in a supportive way…we need to talk….
 
When I write this, replace “yelling” with any negative/unsupportive communication word of your choice; it does not JUST have to be yelling (could be bad body language, throwing things, overall tone/words).  Remember, you can be “YELLING” by not raising your voice – your body says it all.
 
Sometimes, I don’t think Dads hear themselves talk. Sometimes, I don’t think Dads know what they LOOK like.
