Note to Parents from Coach
Oct. 19, 2017
Turn your kid loose on our website: it's built to help you use soccer as a world sport translating its parameters and requirements toward life. I'm pulling from my team-building background not only as a coach, but also a parent of a son in his 20s and a daughter in her late teens, 19 years as a high school and middle school teacher, and 16 seasons guiding whitewater raft trips, now gone into business consulting with outside sales. My background is kind of crazy, including a backpacking trip alone up the Rockies my twenty-third summer in life. I was definitely a kid learning my own capabilities and horizons through physical activities. I teach kinesthetic learners best because I still am one.
I know, as parents, we are our kids' first shield on earth, and we eventually let them go shield their kids. We all want to bring absolutely every winning edge possible to our kids. They will be making more of their own choices each year, and staying plugged in with their lives is the challenge in today's rapid fire world of distractions and dangerous invitations. ALL of us can celebrate their potential rising into action as we cheer on their best from the core, and build their ability to identify their core -- not only their God-given gifts and talents and aptitudes, but especially their purpose and calling. They need to see these things in themselves, and we can cheer them on with this process with exactly the same enthusiasm that we cheer on their soccer.
We can look around at the families with this team and actually feel the forward movement we have found as a group, as a team behind the team. Through soccer, we are pushing them each week to reach down for a little more. In so doing, we do not want to lose any ground with any single one of them. This is hard-won territory in today's world. We must stand that ground and push for more. Please stay in my ear about anything I can do to support your child's individual growth in teamwork, skill sets, and character this season. I promise my best as we pull out their best.
I definitely see we have a special group of parents collected. You guys know that about each other. Let's make the most of our opportunities this season. Find a new brother or sister or two in this mix. We started smart, and we'll finish strong. The more communication and unity, the better. We are teaching our kids to be overcomers together. Let's keep that vision clear throughout our time together. We want them to learn winning choices all across life, with soccer as a realm to make some of these positive principles come alive. Our team website is a key tool. I wish I had bumped into some of these materials when my kids were younger!
