Getting Better

The work is ongoing.  As ol Socrates said, "...you are what you do every day, therefore excellence is a habit."  Thursday, 6 March is a "Get Better" day for sure.  Classroom, gym floor, weight-room for sure. Today, five Sr.'s from our 2013 squad are beginning the process of giving back.  They are providing twenty and thirty minute blocks of instruction to an entire elementary school in their gymnasium across the entire day. Yesterday, while scooping gear for the session, one of these young men remarked that it is exactly ten years ago that he first stepped on the school field for spring flag-football.  Here he is now with his with his mates, a two-time provincial champion, teaching another generation this great game.  In fact, today is his eighteenth birthday and he is spending a great portion of it making a corner of the world a little bit better.  Amen!

Tonight, long-time coaches on our staff, Randy and Larry Cooper are leading over sixty players aged 9-13 through their second practice of the 2014 spring football season.  Flag for the 9,10,11's and tackle for the 12 13's.  The brothers Coop are not alone!  With them on the field are a superb Cadre of community coaches, alumni and current HS players helping our young folks get better!  Saturday will see parents and again, long-time volunteers help out with game-day operations.  It is truly a thing of beauty when a group of diverse people come together in common cause.  I truly believe that everyone walks away "better" in some way from each practice and game than they were before they showed-up.  The friendships that develop out on that patch of dirt are lasting and are the sinews that hold our program together.

There is always room out there on the field for newcomers.  Everyone has something about themselves that is unique and that they can contribute. This applies to youth and adults alike.  The best food you ever ate was probably made from scratch and the mix of folks out on the field tonight will fit within that paradigm just swell.

Today, Thursday 6 March is a great day. Today we get better!
