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.
.....
I Did ... Coach Ellis ... my prayers and love with all my contacts over the past 40 years.

You all were the best and may you succeed in all you attempt and just remember to pass it on.

Coach Ellis resigned from Dobson Softball only on 6-18-2002 and from Mt. Pointe softball on May, 2005 ... After 37 years of coaching high school softball, it was fun and rewarding. Thanks to the hundreds of athletes that played their best and gave of their best, our friendship will always be treasured. … Thanks for memories! ... At Dobson, I retired from coaching badminton November, 2007.

After being out only a year, (I helped on and off at Basha their very first year) ... my love for softball was too great. In 2003, I became the assistant varsity softball coach at Mt. Pointe High School in Phoenix as a part of the Tempe Union High School District. Click here for the location of Mt. Pointe and all the schools we play.

I get all my hats, shorts, and shirts done by Alameda Sportswear for all my teams. They are the best. Check them out.

On 6-28-2002 -- Coach Ellis won the National High School Coach of the Year after receiving the Region 8 Coach of the year in 2002, 1998, 1996, and 1993. Nominated by her peers in the Arizona Coaches Association, the NHSACA selects the region winners. Region 8 includes the following states: Ariz., Calif., Hawaii, Nevada, New Mex., and Utah. The National High School Athletic Coaches Association gives the National award every year to one of the winners of the 8 regions. What is outstanding is that the award was decided before my leaving Dobson Softball was announced. Thanks to everyone involved, I can't tell you what this means to me. HERE'S MY ARTICLES.
