All amateur and minor athletics have one main ingredient in common…Coaches!
Without coaches there would be no team to play on, and no sport to play. Regardless of skill level, and regardless of how serious the athlete or the parent, the Coach is there to devote his or her time to developing young athletes. Though not every coach, team, player, or athlete is successful at winning all the time, they are always successful in dedicating their time and efforts to making your son or daughter a better competitor.
Cards For Coaches is here to help you appreciate and thank the coaches in yours and your children’s lives.
I speak from experience when I say a little token of appreciation goes a long way. More than just thanks.
One of my first great experiences with a coach, was in Atom hockey, the assistant coach was Barry Munro. That year I was cut from the ‘A’ Team and was taking it quite hard. I remember Barry reaching out to me and convincing me that I yes I should have made the ‘A’ Team…but I now have an opportunity to be an integral part of the ‘B’ Team. We went on to win the All Ontario Championship that year.
Years later, In 1987, Barry sustained a spinal cord injury in a diving accident, which resulted in quadriplegia. He has gone on to become a lawyer and among other titles, the Chairman of the Canadian Spinal Research Organization.
