Dedication or Torture?

I thought these photos were funny because both coaches look like they are ready to pull their hair out! So far this season has not gone well. In fact we just won our first game yesterday in the pouring down rain!!

This is Coach Kurt. He has coached LAX for many years even though his kids are grown. In fact his son, Kasey is now coaching the High School LAX team. I cannot express how much admiration I have for Kurt for taking so much time to dedicate to the children and encourage the game of lacrosse.

On the far right is Coach John. His son Jack plays hockey and lacrosse with Brandon. John also helps coach hockey. John is a great mentor for the boys and is great at showing the boys how to improve their game in a positive way. (Zachary is in the background with the black shirt - he didn't play that day because of his stiches).

Thanks guys for everything!!!

4 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. I think its a little of both. I certainly could not do it. Takes an amazing person to coach. I lack patience and skills amongst other things.

  2. I have a lot of respect to coaches who dedicate their time to a great cause, not only sports but fellowship and team spirit.

  3. My husband coaches both hockey and baseball and loves it! He puts in so much time though. It is people like you and kids that make it all worth it.
    Tami, Have a good week.

  4. You've got to love it when adults are actualy GOOD role models for kids instead of the reverse. How lucky to find two good coaches!
