"I feel that this is where the real satisfaction in coaching comes from knowing that you have, to the best of your ability, helped prepare a young person for life beyond their athletic career. As a coach, it's easy to get caught up in the moment, but years later, when you look back, it's the young people you've worked with that you will cherish the most, not how many wins you got."
When I look back on my career, I recall a few personal accomplishments, as that is natural, but most of all, I think of the friendships and the struggle of trying to be the best I could be. Those are the things that sports should be about relationships and trying to reach one's potential in sport and life. Of course, those do not just happen; It takes guidance from those who have been there before you, the coach. When you keep the following things in your coaching philosophy playbook, you can look back at your coaching career with the knowledge you did your best, and most importantly, you made a positive difference in many kids' lives.
