Sport gives us all something fun to live for. Whether it’s being a participant or watching, it brings a sense of community and purpose.
I believe that sports can teach us a lot about life and one of the biggest lessons is work ethic. Nothing is given in my program–you have to earn it because nobody owes you anything.
“Practice is the key to everything, you have to have a certain amount of failures before it will be perfect or competition ready.”
“My utmost responsibility at this time is the health, safety and well-being of my student-athletes. Every opportunity in life gives us a chance to reflect, evaluate and move forward based on the circumstances we are dealt. I choose to use this time to make our student-athletes understand how fortunate, blessed and thankful we are to have our health and to protect the health of others.”
“I hope I can serve as a role model to younger girls who want to accomplish big things. Coming from a small community, I’ve impacted people here. People can relate to me and see that I’m just a normal person, but I have accomplished these big things.”
“Sports has taught me so many skills that I will use long after the game is over–how to interact with different types of people, being schedule oriented and on time, and working together with a group to achieve something bigger than myself.”
“The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great at whatever they want to do.”
“Sports have taught me how to set goals and achieve them while overcoming challenges along the way. I know that sports does the same for others; I see it through my experience in coaching. It is an exciting and powerful force.”
“Sports don’t discriminate. Sports don’t care about one’s race, class, ethnicity or religion.”
“Something magical happens when people gather under the banner of sports, and in our increasingly divided world, there’s never been a more important time for us to come together.”
Founder & President
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”
