Coaching Young Athletes Can Be So Rewarding.
“We made it to the State Quarterfinals for two consecutive years.
This had never been done before in school history”
I would say that’s the crowning achievement of my career.
I’ve trained Olympic athletes.
Highly paid professionals from various sports.
National Team competitors from all over North America and
But I have never been more honored or filled with pride than I
was when I received a letter from the head football coach of
a high school program I volunteer for.
The quote above was part of that letter.
There is something uniquely special about working with and coaching Young Athletes.
So much so that it’s left me sleepless tonight.
I’m writing this to you at 2:00am and am literally bursting at
the seams with energy and exuberance.
I don’t love my job.
I don’t love my career.
I love my place in the world.
My destiny and path.
To aid in the grooming and development of young men and women
through sport, but for the purpose of life preparation, is an
honor that cannot be described in words.
It is a calling.
Something you are compelled to do.
For years I have beencoaching young athletes and teams.
Over 15,000 to date and counting.
And I remember them all.
I stay in touch with as many of them as I can to this day.
They were not my clients and I there Trainer.
They were my focus and reason for getting out of bed every
For 14 years, I have not had one day of work.
I have had 5,110 days of enthusiastic joy, though.
This all may sound odd and a touch ‘mushy’ – but that is the
difference between a job and a passion.
My obligation to these kids far exceeds wanting them to get
faster and stronger.
It is in helping cultivate their futures.
And by default, the future of our world.
Yes, my young athletes are widely known as the fastest, strongest
and most injury resistant.
But they also are know to be the best students, most
trustworthy people and have gone on to have success in both
the sporting world and beyond.
It’s much more than speed training or understanding lifting
It’s about combining the best possible training methods with
a coaching system that truly helps young people reach for the
stars in every conceivable way.
My years of experience, trail and error, many mistakes and
re-evaluations have all been honed down into one system that
works – it works every time for any aged athlete in any sport.
It’s the entire system that has the right ingredients of speed,
strength, athletic development, agility and coaching.
I’ll never forget the look in the eyes of those 70+ high school
football players as they took the field for the State
Quarterfinals for the second year in a row.
It was over two years ago and I still get chills thinking about Coaching Young Athletes.
We lost that game.
But as several of the kids came off the field, crying with
disappointment, they sought me out, wrapped their arms around me
“Thanks Coach…. for everything”
That’s the difference between a passion and a job.
I’m going to be making Complete Athlete Development available
one last time at some point over the next couple of weeks.
I hope you can see how important an opportunity that is for you.
