Coach Tyree is good at what he does. My 7 year old son loves every bit of his work out. We booked another session with coach Tyree. Really looking forward to it.
My son just finished his first session with coach Tyree and absolutely loved it. We already booked more sessions!!
Wins and losses today will not determine their character when they are adults but learning how to handle them will.
One day a child walked up to me, he did not say one word to me. Instead of using his words to respond to me, he just shook his head for yes or no. How I was taught, you were to speak when being talked to, especially if its an adult. Later that day we had football practice. I noticed that the same young man was not putting in much effort during practice. I knew thats something had to be going on that he was acting the way he was. The next practice, he was late, I seen him just standing at the gate. I overheard his mother telling him to get off the gate and join his team for practice, practically forcing him to get on the field with to practice. At that point, I knew it was my duty to walk over there to see what the issue was with this young man. As I walked closer, I notice he was still grabbing at the gate and was crying because he did not want to play football. I talked to him and explain to him so many things about life and about Football. After 10 minutes of talking, he joined the rest of the team to practice. It was that very moment, that very day, from that point on this young man came to practice on time. Every practice he worked harder and harder and always gave 100%. There were times were I seen this same young man who at one point didn’t want to play, he begin to talk to other kids on the team, he began to vocalize and interact more with his team. By the end of the season, that same young man who had no motivation to play showed leadership, in which, it led him to be the captain of the defense line. I told him I knew he had it in him all along and was very proud of him. The young mans parents came to me one day and thanked me for coaching him they have seen a total change in him and his behavior. They said that he is a total different person from who he was the beginning of the season and who he is now. His parents also made it known that he’s obedient on and off the field. At home he was honoring his parents by completing chores and being responsible. She stated he was also being more active in school by participating in school activities and vocalizing his opinions, there were also a great improvement in his grades the teacher notice his improvements at school. Who would have known that one conversation, would change ones life?
During my 11 years of coaching I’ve won titles and championships but the story and memories like this that goes straight to the heart and is what I do it for. To impact lives like that. That’s the true reward.
You either doing something to prepare to succeed..
Or doing nothing to prepare to fail..
