That's right. Dynomite. I like it. I'm not sure the girls know who this guy is? He was around when I was a wee wisp of an idea in my parent's dreams. He was considered a great TV and stand up comedian of his time and was very popular. Google him.

Scoring/Reffing Certification

We don't want to be that guy in the picture, so I would like for all the players on our team to get certified for reffing and score keeping. This way two or three girls don't get stuck reffing for the entire season and we also increase our volleyball IQ. The cost is a one time fee of $10 for both reffing and scoring. More information can be found on the CHRVA website. After you login to your account, click on the left-side drop down menu where it says "Regional Ref/Scoring Clinics" and proceed from there. Please try to have this done by our first tournament.

"I hate doing book. It's so hard"

That's a great statement for a couple of reasons...

Hard is good for you. When you find things hard, it's important to attack them rather than avoid them. You'll end up being a better person after you get done with the situation relative to your character and work ethic. You'll become good friends with Perseverance, Grit and Sticktoitiveness (real word). You'll learn some things about yourself too which will also be really cool. Then when it's all said and done you'll think "Oh wow. I did it! That wasn't so bad after all. I'm pretty awesome". #facts

Take out "entrepreneurs" and put in anything you want. Artist. Writer. Mathemagician. Volleyball Player. It's still true.
