Thank you, volunteer coaches

We write about it all the time, the plight and challenges of youth sports volunteer coaches. However maybe we don’t just say, “thank-you” often enough. So we’d like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for all the moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles and big siblings (and any others we may have missed!) for donating your time to coach the local Little League, Cal Ripken, PONY, AYSO, etc. It takes guts to put yourself out there in judgement of the other parents who aren’t coaching. It takes time and money. It can be frustrating, lonely, scary and upsetting. But it can also be fun and rewarding. If you’re reading this and you know of someone who is volunteering their time to coach a team, please tell them thank you for us.
