Q: Saul-

welcomed 5 PAX to Trident. Saul explained the mission of F3, checked for FNGs and reminded PAX to modify as needed.

PAX moseyed from the shovel flags to the warm parking garage to take cover from the cold and wind.

Words of Wisdom:

Basketball has always been my favorite sport. I have three kids and all of them play. I coach two of them and my wife coaches them as well. For the sake of our marriage, we don’t coach them together on the same teams. This season has been a grind. A lot of time on my side with volunteering and sometimes my wife and I second guessing whether we put too much demand on our kids with their busy sports schedules.

We aren’t raising Division I athletes. Frankly, it may be tough for them to make high school teams. But, these are not the goals my wife and I set out for our kids. It has always been much bigger than the sport they are playing. It has always been about developing them into good humans. I think this is an important perspective to keep in the crazy ultra-competitive environment we live in.

So, wanted to share with you some values that my wife and I hold as it relates to youth athletics. 

  • Hard work leading to definable results
  • Value of team work-sum is greater than its parts
  • Respect for authorities-coaches and refs. Related to this, not only verbal communication but non-verbal. Also related, not having a victim mentality.
  • Conflict resolution
  • Keeping control of your emotions
  • Building confidence
