The Premier Baseball Social Network for Players, Coaches, Scouts, and Umpires
My coaching (and parenting) philosophy comes from this rhyme from an unknown author.
“No written word or spoken plea
can teach our youth what they should be
nor all the books on all the shelves
for it what the teachers are themselves.”
When my kids were kids, I cut the grass, I shoveled the snow, I took out the garbage, etc. As I observe them as adults, it’s neat to see them do those things “themselves.”
It doesn’t mean that is the right or only way, it’s just “what” I was.
What does that mean for coaching?
Are any of the above the only way, no, but do your best, work to improve and never forget “It’s What the teachers are!”
