Spring Pick-Me-Up

I don’t know if its just this long winter we’re having, but for some reason this has been a particularly harsh season on dance team coaches I’ve been talking to.  I think we could all use some love! How about another national coaches day? We haven’t had one since 1972. Here’s what President Nixon said about coaches back then:

Coaches are highly qualified teachers—in highly specialized fields. But more than that, they are friends and counselors who help to instill in their charges important attitudes that will serve them all their lives. I know from my own experience how much an understanding coach can do to shape the life of a young person. For a coach can help to teach a student the value of teamwork, discipline, and a healthy attitude toward competition. A coach can help a young person learn how to win gracefully and how to grow from defeat. A coach can help build that moral fiber on
which our future as a Nation depends.

The coaches of America, in sports and in many other fields of endeavor, do not work for personal glory. Their satisfaction usually comes through the achievements of others whom they have helped. It is appropriate that our Nation join in according them the recognition and honor which they so richly deserve, for they represent the finest elements in the American character.
