I'm fortunate in that I know maybe 12 coaches personally; their strengths, styles, interests, locations, and student preferences. Some coaches are wonderful with kids, but have no interest in teaching adults. Other coaches will take adults, but aren't available for freestyles. (For me personally, that's an important point.) Others will take adults, but are more interested in students with higher skills. Not every coach can teach an adult basic skills. (Trust me on that one.) Individually, these are all wonderful coaches, but I'm looking for a coach who can take an adult with special 'kneeds', and teaches on freestyle.
This brought me down to three coaches of my acquaintance. What do I do next?
|Which coach? Which coach?|
Geeze, I seem like one of those New Yorkers who peruse the obituaries to find an apartment available for rent don't I?
Anyway, I'll approach the coach on Saturday to see if she has an opening, and see if she's willing to try me out for a couple of months. Cross fingers I can get started learning again.
