    We lost our coach.

    Well, it seems our coach is not returning this season, as he was offered a job at another University.
    We still have the President of the club to act as interim coach, but frankly, I liked the actual coach better.
    Plus, they are training someone else to be 'Coach in training', even though she's only been with the team one season.
    What annoys me is that I am actually a certified Level 1 Coach from years ago, but my wonky work and vacation schedule the last couple of summers has made it almost impossible to regularly attend practices, let alone think of coaching.

    Plus, there the whole interpersonal thing that I have to deal with, re: me and the President and the 'Old Guard' of the club.

    Well nuts. Yeah, I can imagine how annoying that would be with your schedule preventing you from doing stuff with the team. I'm assuming the 'Old Guard' are players who have been with the team for many seasons and are essentially a clique and think they're important? That would for sure be annoying.

      The annoying thing was that my previous job was essentially 8-4 and left me nights, weekends and parts of the summer off. Most of these people either had regular office jobs or were retired (or housewives).

      I wouldn't say they were a 'clique' per se, just I think they see the club in a different way than I do (They are far more looking at it as a social club and I want to see us more competitive)

        Update:

        They hired a different coach, who is in the process of transitioning out of the military....Very motivational (And I am not being sarcastic or whatever) and has big plans for us....Plus, this year was the first in 2-3 seasons that we have enough people to have both a "rec" team" (which is what we have basically had for years) and a Competition team, which is more willing to train a bit more and try to win at festivals...
