How Will You Be Remembered by the Kids You Coach?
Ten or fifteen years from now, what will the kids on your community athletic team remember? The score of the last tournament game? The number of wins chalked up in their final season? Probably not.
Author John Shannon, a volunteer youth coach for nearly thirty years, reminds us that kids will remember whether they had fun and whether you taught them anything important about living life. He brings new meaning to the old adage, “It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.” Shannon stresses the importance of teaching children self-discipline, respect, integrity, hard work, taking chances, making mistakes, winning and losing with dignity.
