    I came across this today: Stay at 17 inches

    It's about holding ourselves to a higher standard.

    His message was clear: “Coaches, keep your players — no matter how good they are — your own children, and most of all, keep yourself at seventeen inches.”

    Well worth a read!

    Great read Barb thanks for sharing smile

  • anfy

    So true in so many contexts. Will remember this story.

    What a great moral story. I thoroughly recommend reading it.

    Agree, a good account - well worth reading - thanks for sharing.

    Whilst I agree we must set and maintain standards and expectations, and everone has to be accountable, surely there must also be flexibility and compromise?  Especially when working with younger athletes / players ... showing up late, for example, is not always something a youngster can control.

    Younger players are so often reliant on adults to get them to training and matches; to agree to take them in the first place; to allow the player to miss a family gathering in favour of attending training/competition; to pay for kit and fees; and so on.

    While we have to treat our players equally, we can't treat them all the same.

    It's not about favouring individuals, it's about supporting their situation.  In my experience, as long as the others know WHY, it's not an issue and the standards remain intact.

    I agree!

    Very good read and something that gets forgotten about in our sport as well.
