The WOW Project…

So the Boston Breakers are back from Florida and a good training camp.

Everyday I am on the field with these players is really special. I know that we all see the negative ways that professional athletes sometimes choose to spend their time but these women are really amazing. First they are not making that much money and yet they spend as much time training and honing their craft as any other professionals. They are dedicated! To the Game! To the Team! and To the communities they live in. This last week a group of players started The WOW Project – see below…

W.O.W. With or Without. Four Individuals with a goal of taking up a good deed (with) or giving up something (without) for everyday of the WPS season (164 Days)

Today is Day 7. Be kind and brighten someones day with a free cup of coffee.

What a great ideal. Looking for ways to see others smile, at times it’s silly, motivating and always fun! I love it! Very proud of the group we have in Boston. I’ll share more on these terrific people and players later till then, follow TheWOWProject on Twitter and get on board!

First Blog…

So what to write about? I’m not big on writing but I would like to start to use this blog to share my experiences in coaching.

It’s such a great profession, being on the field everyday with young people, passionate people, and being apart of a TEAM! I love watching players develop not only on the field but seeing them grow as people. The confidence that comes from being apart of something bigger then just one person. Overcoming challenges, mastering a skill, making sacrifices, sport is a unbelievable teacher and coaching is a great responsibility.

Coaches often have the ability to reach young people in a way that can change lives and at times when they are often not listening to a lot of adults. I know my life was changed by the coaches that came through it. So thank you to all of them. And to those of you who coach, recognize your influence and make the most of it.

Till next time…enjoy the game!
