Have you had a coach that has impacted your life?
Being involved in youth athletics is your first exposure to goal setting, strategizing, and pushing yourself physically and mentally. It is the first realization that your capabilities are greater than your mind’s limitations and that winning can only happen through teamwork, chemistry, and a mutually desired outcome.
I am grateful to have had several inspiring coaches during my (short!) athletic career.
My coaches demanded high standards and accountability while pushing me out of my comfort zone, forcing my growth as a student, athlete, and citizen.
In his book No Limits, National Championship Calvert Hall Coach Mark Amatucci shares how his aggressive, relentless and passionate style helped players create athletic, social and cultural success on and beyond the court.
Today we acknowledge the coaches who have dedicated their time, molding minds and teaching the value of hard work and consistency to both youths and adults.
As the great Jimmy V said, “There are 86,400 seconds in your day. It is up to you to decide what to do with them.”
It only takes 2 seconds out of your day to show your gratitude by tagging your favorite coaches below.
I want to personally thank Mark Amatucci, Joe Baker, Bill Mackley, and Lou Eckerl. I am grateful for your relationship on and off the basketball court and football field. Go Hall!
We believe coaching can change lives. This is why the last C of The EPPIC Method™ stands for COACH.
