Practice Hard, Play Strong, Love the Game!

Sometimes it seems that the days of neighborhood kids playing sports for hours unsupervised with friends at the neighborhood vacant lot are long gone. Those were good times! While I enjoy (and have coached many) organized youth sports, I sometimes wonder if the kids are having as much fun as we used to. I also wonder if some of the good ol’ sayings like “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game” are still held in high regard in our win-at-all-costs, professional-athletics-driven culture. I still believe that everyone benefits from sports the most when there’s a spirit of FUN and exciting PLAY…sports are amazing, let’s remember to ENJOY!
