Hello fellow parents and coaches! If you are like us, you spend much of your free time on the road and in the bleachers supporting your children in their sports commitments. We all know there are a range of emotions that come with the territory and a variety of personalities we meet and observe along the way. There are the golden moments of victory – whether it be a winning game or an amazing example of sportsmanship – as well as the scratch-your-head and frustrating times when defeat comes not only in loss but in the negative manner in which a situation is handled. There are teaching moments in all of these scenarios. So, as witnesses and participants, we encourage you to share your stories/observations with each other by submitting them for potential inclusion in our Ripples from the Rock blog. The more we encourage and highlight the good news in youth sports, the more enlightened everyone who participates in this realm will be! Please submit your entries for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to hear from you!
