Old Fashioned Values

I'm an old fashioned fellow with old fashioned values. I've thought about the past memories here and there. I'd have rather spent all the time in the world + allow unusual behavior than loose a good friend or family member any day! I just visited a dear friend’s home who was unable to be there due to medical reasons. My time was spent in their yard a week or so ago. Her oldest child was there remodeling her kitchen etc. Her youngest was helping and then off to work elsewhere. This is the nature of life, it takes its course no matter what, when, or how hard we try to mold and shape it, "we are just passengers here on this earth, make the best of it" as my grandmother once told me around 30 years ago. RIP JSS 1923-2003

Our U-11 Tigers

There is a great feeling that comes over you when getting involved with the coaching of 12+ 8, 9, &10 year olds! It's hard to put into words, but I'll attempt to explain in brief detail here. Work, work, all week long, but there is still time to stop the grind and get out there on the soccer field with our children and play! It releases all the tension and pent up energy form the daily routine of life in general. We highly recommend not just watching but getting involved in the actual soccer scrimmages with your kids, its just as exciting for you as it is for them, well at least nearly. The entire family will benefit from the exercise + the rewards for the parents and tigers are limitless! Enjoy those soccer practices, games, moments of teaching + learning, which in turn you will receive the prize of joy in the end. We extend Grace and blessings from one coach/parent to another.

Golf & Fresh Air

Day to day grind, chores, maintenence, things getting old that must be replaced can get the best of us! However there is one exception lately, after my works done, it’s the golf course. When I’m out there making my rounds and turning the turns, even when there are others near, I feel a great sense of privacy, courage, and appreciation, clarification, and it’s very rewarding, basically a slice of heaven on earth. Just for a moment at times after walking thousands of yards time simply stops for me and everything else around me slows down too. I get to actually take a few deep breaths of fresh air + take in the awesome surroundings, instead of the tainted crap that I’m use to dealing with on a regular basis. My overexcited nervousness or what feels like hectic concern seems to dissolve into the wood line.

The NCYSA penalties in regards to risk management found to be a bit much when it comes to the American born, bred, locally raised, activist, and volunteer. We wrote an extensive article in great detail on how the NCYSA and its president/liaison handled without due-regard, one of our true unsung and unknown hero’s, the American volunteer. Stay tuned to find out what we had to say about this example of this particulars association’s outlandish and ridiculous misfortune of one of its closest affiliates, family youth programs + association the YMCA.
