A message for all Coaches:
......... .Impact of Coaches on all kids:
..... I have come to a frightening conclusion.
..... I am and you are the decisive element in the field or gym.
..... It is our personal approach that creates the climate.
..... It is our daily mood that makes the weather.
..... As a coach, we possess tremendous power to make an athlete's life miserable or joyous.
..... We can be the tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
..... We can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
..... In all situations it is our response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated
..... and an athlete humanized or dehumanized.
..... So Coaches, remember that it is just a game and your relationship with that individual will last a lifetime.
..... Make it a great memory forever.
