Coaches are the people that aren’t only there to teach children the game, but they are there to encourage them, to discipline them, to teach them skills that will last a lifetime: endurance, priorities, and responsibility.
But what about those coaches who simply volunteer their time to be a part of children’s lives. These volunteer coaches go to their “day job”, then turn around to come to practice, to games, and to banquets.
It takes dedication to be a volunteer coach – to be someone that says “I’ll do it!” and step up to be a leader of the team. And because of that dedication, we are honored to feature Coaches of Excellence for a third year in Black Hills Family magazine.
Readers, team members, parents, and co-workers have taken the time to nominate an outstanding coach in their child’s life throughout the Black Hills region. And now – we get to share the stories of three amazing volunteer coaches. Thank you for all you do for our kids and our community.
