Attention Dad’s–Don’t Miss this Speech on The Positive Influence of Sports on Girls Development

Daily Quote: ” The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion when no one else is watching.” Anson Dorrance 

Reflection: I was doing research for my Growth Experts blog in regard to the impact of sports on the character development of children and ran across this wonderful speech by University of North Carolina Women’s  Soccer coach Anson Dorrance,  presents and introduces Mia Hamm at the
2007 National Soccer Hall of Fame Induction.

It is a moving and very insightful speech on the importance of the development of character and leadership for women involved in sports.

Self-Coaching Challenge: What are you doing to encourage your daughter or son to participate in sports, so that they can benefit from  the many lessons sport’s can teach about perseverance, deliberate practice and teamwork?
