I received this recently from one of our league’s sponsors who was thanking the many league volunteers for all they do and had to share it. I thought it was very well put.

Thank "all" of you for the time and effort ya’ll spend making a difference in our children and community. I’m a firm believer that sports help prepare our youth to deal with pressures coming their way. Also, learning to win with dignity and lose with pride while striving to get better is a solid foundation for future leaders.

I should print this out and hand it to certain coaches and parents who sometimes lose sight of why they are there on the sidelines :)
