Здесь он и принял свое решение. Настанет день, когда человечество снова будет готово отправиться к звездам. Какую новую главу напишет Человек там, среди этих пылающих миров, Олвин не.

Community and school-team coaches… they are volunteers that too often are not appreciated nearly enough. My children are currently finishing up another round of sports before a new one starts. They play a number of sports, so move from one sport to another depending on the time of year it is. We have been blessed with some fantastic coaches! This year has been particularly great… so much so that it has me reflecting on all of the positives that come with having our children coached well. Here is a tribute to all of the great coaches out there!
Thank you! Thank you for volunteering your time… time spent planning practices and also time spent at each of the practices and games. Thank you for always showing up even when some of the kids don’t. Thank you for your commitment to developing not only better players, but better people as well!

Let’s face it. Not every practice and game is easy. Our kids will be challenged. That’s okay. Pushing them to work through the difficult times, pick themselves up and spring back builds resilience. As much as I’d like to be, I can’t always be there to help my kids work through every difficult moment in their lives. Providing opportunities in which they need to be resilient helps our children to also be resilient in other areas of their lives. Thank you!
Every game cannot be won. In games, there are winners and losers. Losing a game does not mean our kids are losers. It just means that they lost a game. Wins in life are meant to be celebrated. Losses are meant to be learned from and worked through. Winning builds confidence and losing builds resilience. Our coaches are there to teach our kids to celebrate those wins and to overcome those losses with sportsmanship and class. Thank you for helping our children learn to not celebrate the but to overcome the losses!
In sport, winning is not just winning a game. Our kids learn to celebrate their own personal wins. Perhaps it is a personal fastest running time or their farthest baseball hit. Maybe there were more solid passes, assists, or personal goals scored than ever before. Either way, our kids learn to challenge themselves and strive to do and be their personal best. Thank you, Coaches, for building this attribute in our children!
Each of my children experience times where they struggle in their chosen sports. There are strike-outs, shots that do not result in points, and times where they are beaten in a play. However, coaches continue to encourage them and to believe in them. Being part of a team provides children with a sense of belonging… one that is fostered by their coaches. Our children learn to consistently become involved in the plays and to keep up. This increases their confidence and stamina. Thank you for continuing to believe in our children and for helping to build their confidence!
Through sport, our children learn to share the workload and to work together to achieve a common goal. The saying, “There is no I in team” is true. Learning to pass to others is essential since a pass will almost always get the ball or puck to its destination faster than trying to do everything oneself. Children need each other on a team and have to learn to work together, regardless of skill level, in order for the team to function optimally. Thank you for encouraging and teaching our children to cooperate with one another!
Let’s face it! No parent wants their children to be walked all over. Coaches and sports teach our children to be assertive… not aggressive, but assertive! Our children learn to confidently go for what they want and work in an attempt to force it to happen. Thank you, Coaches, for teaching our children to be assertive… to know when to go for things when working toward an outcome and also when to back off!
Momentum is huge in sports as it is in life. When things are going well, they generally continue to go well until there is a sudden change in momentum. When things are not going well, it is important for our children to continue to be kind to themselves and learn to shake it off and use positive self-talk. Thank you, Coaches, for teaching our children to give themselves positive messages to overcome any challenges they may be facing!
Sports are meant to be enjoyed by the players. Each of my children has had seasons with many wins and others with many losses. They choose to continue to play because of the fun they are having. Thank you, Coaches, for encouraging our children to play for the love of the game rather than to play for the wins!
Our children learn that it is imperative that they communicate with others when in games. They learn to communicate when they are open or when they see an opportunity in the game. They share in the joy of a win and experience the toughness of a loss together, communicating with each other throughout. Thank you, Coaches, for helping our children see the value in communicating with one another!
My one daughter plays hockey with both boys and girls. There is a golden jersey handed to a player who played particularly well after each game. The player then gets to keep the jersey until the next game when it is given to another player. When my daughter came out wearing this golden jersey after one of her games with another player who I thought also had an excellent game, I said to the other player, “I thought you were going to get the golden jersey this game. You had a great game!”
His response? He smiled back and exclaimed, “Oh, no. I knew your daughter was getting the golden jersey today. She played awesome!”
There was no resentment. There was no jealousy. He was happily celebrating the success of another player.
My kids get excited about not only how they play, but how others play as well. I personally love watching athletes congratulate each other! This is behavior fostered by our coaches. Thank you!
No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. Our children are given constructive criticism when playing sports. It is not about tearing them apart, but about building them up and helping them to improve and develop into being better than they currently are. Our children will also receive a lot of constructive criticism throughout their lives. Thank you, Coaches, for helping our children learn how to take constructive criticism and helping them to know that the goal is to help them improve rather than to tear them down.
On any given team, our children are amongst others. Some are more skilled players than they are. Others are less skilled. Some are kind no matter what. Others are not. Our children need to learn to work through differences and still claim their place on the team.
A few years ago now, I showed up early to pick up my son from his high school football practice. What I saw impressed me. The team was working on a brutally challenging drill. Some of the team members could work through it and others were really struggling. What impressed me was as the team members completed the drill, their job then became to go and personally encourage, cheer, and provide water for another team member that was struggling to complete the drill. This continued until teammate worked through it.
Thank you, Coaches, for helping our children learn to encourage each other and to see the good and appreciate the skill levels and personalities of each child on the team!
Kids that are coached well tend to want to continue living an active lifestyle. My children haven’t enjoyed every sport they’ve played. However, they have enjoyed being active and gained an appreciation for all sports whether or not they enjoy playing a particular one themselves. I personally love the fact that my children enjoy being active. Living an active lifestyle is nurtured by great coaches. Thank you!
Good coaches encourage our children to treat each other fairly not only when in competition, but when the game is over as well. Our children learn to respect the other competitors and to follow the rules of a game. They learn to take pride in their wins and to accept their losses. Thank you, Coaches, for helping our children learn the important life skill of being a good sport!

Here are some Thank You Coach ideas that look beautiful engraved on a marble or wood plaque. Add your team name, school name, dates, championship won.
Two weeks ago I shared a post that focused on high school coaches, which pointed out some less-than-stellar examples of coaching: Dear Coaches, High Schoolers Are Not Paid Athletes. I got to thinking about that post and the thought occurred to me that I should really write a related post focused on positive coaching.
As I mentioned in that post, our kids have been fortunate to have several good coaches over the years, so I want to give those coaches, along with every other positive coach out there, a big thank you. This is Little League Baseball-oriented, but it could easily apply to coaches of any sport. So here goes:
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. Thank you for spending hours of your own free time working with kids and never giving up on them; even those kids who look like they’re NEVER going to get it. Thank you for showing up for every practice, game, and team party ready to teach and help.
Thank you for sending emails and texts to constantly keep us updated because life is busy with so many other things. Thank you for responding to our questions even though you already sent the same information in your update.
Thank you for being willing to stand in the rain and get soaked for two hours so your players can get better. Thank you for working as hard as you possibly can to get the field dry so you can somehow still play the game.
Thank you for being patient when parents don’t get their kids to practice on time. Thank you for not losing it when you’re expecting them to be there an hour before game time and there’s still no sign of them with just 30 minutes to spare.
Thank you for driving them SAFELY all over town because their parents are busy driving their siblings all over town. Thank you for waiting patiently after practice because their parents are running late to pick them up.
Thank you for buying them dinner when you’re traveling home late from a far away location. Thank you for handing down equipment, uniforms, and other sporting apparel and gear without asking anything in return.
Thank you for picking up the tab for batting cage sessions, and for optional uniforms so one kid doesn’t feel left out. Thank you for buying their first pair of metal spikes because their parents couldn’t afford to.
Thank you for showing up an hour before practice, or staying an hour after, to work with our kids one-on-one and give them that little extra time and help they really need.
Thank you for being there for them when they strike out, make an error, commit a turnover or make a major mistake. Thank you for encouraging them even when they have given up on themselves.
Thank you for focusing on the positive even when their parents might be too focused on the negative. Thank you for turning failures into teaching moments and for using successes as building blocks.
Thank you for making them smile when they don’t feel like smiling. Thank you for being their friend. Thank you for pushing them just hard enough without knocking them down. And thank you for building them back up when they do get down.
Thank you for staying after the game to clean up the field and for making sure all the equipment is put away. Thank you for teaching them that there are more important things than winning. Thank you for setting a good example and remembering that they are watching you.
Thank you for letting those less-talented kids have a chance to shine, too. Thank you for not yelling or punishing when kids make mistakes. Thank you for recognizing when kids are giving everything they’ve got and doing the absolute best they can.
Thank you for recognizing and pointing out when kids do something right, when they make improvements, or when the light bulb finally goes off about something you’ve been preaching for weeks. And thank you for celebrating with them when they achieve success.
Thank you for being a positive influence in their life.
Thank you for sticking with that kid that no matter how hard you worked with him just couldn’t hit the ball, because he finally did in the last game of the year, and it was amazing.
Thank you for teaching kids to be good sports, to be good people and to treat others with respect.
It’s not your job to raise these kids, but thank you for reinforcing the good lessons that their parents are trying to teach them.
Most of all, thank you for loving our kids, because that is what being a patient, kind, and positive coach is really all about.
So to all good coaches everywhere, I say thank you. Thank you for giving everything you have to make kids sports better, and even more importantly for helping make these kids better.
Great work, coach!

“I am a coach because of the kids and the passion I have for the sport itself. There is no other feeling quite like helping young athletes further develop their natural persistence, determination, discipline, dedication, resiliencey, work ethic, heart, leadership skills, connection with, and respect for others, not only in competition, but in life!”
“A good soccer coach takes his love for the game and instills it in you. He molds you into the player he sees inside of you and watches your talent and dedication grow into a skill that you both can be proud of. His payoff is the smile he sees on your face after you have reached your goal. His drive are the tears you cry because you want it so bad, knowing he had the same feeling inside him too. Make him proud and never give less than your best. You both deserve it.”
“Coaches, I always knew how to play soccer, but you taught me how to win. Thank you.”
“All soccer players and kids need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them.” – Magic Johnson
“No soccer coach ever stops learning. That’s what makes the great coaches great. They strive to learn more every day and they never stop asking questions.”
“Coaching is taking a player where they can’t take themself.”
“Our soccer coach leads by example, dedicated and determined, teaches teamwork, motivates and listens, builds character, challenges and develops, committed to our team, our biggest fan.”
They Play. I Coach. You Cheer.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing.
“Playing soccer with your feet is one thing, but playing soccer with your heart is another.”
“As a coach you should not only teach the skills but also the why behind them so your soccer players are prepared and confident during the game.”
“Hard work beats talent. When talent doesn’t work hard.” -Tim Notke
“A Good Coach Sees In You What You Can’t See In Yourself.”
“When you feel like quitting think about why you started.”
“Coaches who outline plays are a dime a dozen. The one’s who win get inside their players and motivate.” – Vince Lombardi Arsene Wenger
“You may think it’s the goalkeepers fault but it can’t be if they got past the strikers, midfielders, and defenders.”
I eat soccer. I sleep soccer. I breathe soccer. I’m not mad, i’m just passionate. -Thierry Henry
“Good players practice until they get it right, great players practice until they never get it wrong.”
Life is like a game of soccer. You need goals!
“The pain you feel today will be the strength you feel tomorrow.”
You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by rewards, but both are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self motivation.
