Coaching Thoughts
By Vern Gambetta
I overheard someone the other day when he was asked what he did for a living he answered: “I am only a coach.” I wanted to scream, no your not, you are so much more than that. Being a coach is special, more special than we can ever imagine. As coaches we have the opportunity to reach and influence young men and young women in situations of stress and pressure that they might not experience anywhere else in their life. We can teach and change behavior. Being a coach is not a job it is a special calling, it is an opportunity to make the world a better place for that short time we interact with those athletes each day. Your not only a coach, you’re special, your make a difference everyday in those athletes lives! We owe to our athletes and ourselves to make it the best part of the day.
