“Even if you get frustrated by the kids, the parents, the nonsense, the referees. Just remember why you started coaching. Remember why you started playing. Instill your love of this dumb version of don’t let the balloon hit the floor into the kids. Find joy in the small nuances of coaching - a player who successfully made their serve, watching a team be cohesive between matches, and when the light bulb goes off for a player.”
— Sean Manzi, Head Men's Coach at Belmont Abby
