Back in 2001, I played my first Softball game. It was purely out of interest and since my Alma mater used to excel in the game, they had proper equipment and most district and zone level players were there. The thing was that our principal had this policy of sports in the college. The college will only let students play Soccer, Hockey and Volleyball seriously. The old legacy of a strong Softball team's training ground was diminished. What we did were gather those interested and experienced to create a club. And for two years, we've been learning from each other, with just a friendly game with the teachers.
After 2002, I did not play that game at all.
And now, 2009, since the administrations in the school knew of my background, they decided to make a team next year. They sent me and another teacher to the Softball Umpiring course so that we could learn more about the game and how to be good coaches and umpires. Even though it was just 2 days, we learned a lot!
And the organizers are willing to help our school with the equipments!
Well, I gotta plan for next year, since if we have a team, we could represent the district right away (benefits for the kids) and might as well represent the state.
I hope I could make a change in the school and I believe this is one of them.
Wish me luck.
p/s: I'm starting to love this year's April.
