Why I Play/Coach
While there is great value in learning from the experts on healthy and sustainable youth sports participation, it is also vital to hear from those closest to the game – that is, the youth athletes and the coaches who work with them every day. In this section of Your Winning Ways, we feature the voices of the athletes – why they play and what they enjoy most from sport. And we also hear from those dedicated coaches who not only teach the sport, but have also made a commitment to develop good citizens of the game and community.
