Send The Coach A Thank You

Here is a thank you I sent a coach and his reply. You can learn a lot about your kids if you talk to their coaches.

Hi Matt and Jon,

Great games last night. They were so much fun to watch.

My dad flew in from FLA to see my son (and his sister) play this weekend. My dad, who was a great basketball player for Rutgers back in the 60's, was very impressed. He was impressed with the team, but was really impressed with the progress that my son has made in one year. He could not stop talking about it.

Last year, my son played with passion and made a lot of things happen because of it, but he was out of control most of the time and his basketball IQ was low. He still plays with passion, but he is using it so much more productively and intelligently. For that and for building his confidence, I thank you both.

See you tomorrow.

Thanks for the kind note ...

One thing I must tell you about your son which was most impressive to me happened during a practice...

At the end of practice and a lot of sprints, we were practicing free throws. If the kid made the free throw practice was over for that player. If the kid missed he had to run the up and down the full length of the court. AJ who is normally a good free throw shooter couldn't hit his free throw so he ran and ran and ran. Everyone else stood and watched AJ run alone except for your son who had already hit his free throw but continued to run with AJ until he finally made one. He did this on his own no direction from any of the coaches...

This is something special and shows a GREAT teammate! I know it is a result of learning from someone (his parents)!

Just wanted to share that with you... your son's a great kid and always  has a smile on his face which is very infectious



Coach Matt
