Great article from Deborah Francisco on NHL.com about the rewards that come with coaching youth hockey. I couldn’t agree more as coaching has provided me with a wealth of memories, friendships and a pride in hopefully enriching the lives of the players I’ve been given the opportunity to interact with. However, my life has also been enriched. My favourite part of this article is about getting to know your players and taking the time to learn from them. Coaches need to be good students along with being good teachers; equally-invested teammates as well as leaders. Everyone has an opportunity to grow.
