I have been a participant, a spectator, a coach, an administrator, a tackling dummy, backstop and punching bag for youth sports at one time or another in my life totaling well over 15 years. I have seen the best and the worst of kids’ sports and hopefully I did not contribute to the latter.
I have two boys and have spent countless hours in the backyard, the field and the court not only coaching them but learning how to be a coach myself. The one thing I know for sure is that I have a lot to learn but it is a wonderful journey and a great adventure.
I started a youth tackle football organization in our community and it has been going strong now for over 8 years. We server the community as well as provide a feeder into our local middle and high school. I also serve on multiple booster clubs for our local high school. I am also an amateur sports videographer/editor. So needless to say my life, as well as my family’s, is perpetually immersed in youth sports.
