Life Lessons

Sport provides such an excellent platform to teach important life principles and values that help shape the character of young people. All experiences are of value to youth development. The exhilaration of victory and the pain and disappointment of defeat have their place.

Life will deliver its blows. What we must teach is how to respond. The question is, how strong are we mentally, physically, and spiritually to take these blows and make the choice to keep standing back up and moving forward?

“There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.” Denis Waitley

  1. I heard a parent comment to their child one day that it is impossible to get ahead in life and it reminded me of this quote.

    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

    ―Muhammad Al

    Life lesson number one is nothing is impossible if you work hard enough.
