Three Keys to Managing an Interscholastic Athletic Program
Safety of athletes is always the #1 priority.
It's all about making positive connections with everyone.
Parents need give the sports away to their kids and offer positive support as loving spectators.
"Ultimately, athletes just want to look back on a season and say, - 'You know, I really had fun and learned a lot.' - "
