The coach’s loneliness.

Although coaches are always surrounded by their athletes and there may be good communication between them, there are issues that coaches must face alone to protect their athletes.

Coaches do not exist in isolation. They have a life, personal commitments, which they often puts aside in favor of their athletes. They have their own personal problems, which oftentimes suffers alone.

When things go well, your coach shares your joy. When things go wrong, suffers with you.

When you see your coach today, I encourage you to thank him or her for the efforts he or she makes for you every day. Month after month. Year after year.

And if it feels embarrassing to do so, at least try to show a positive attitude towards him or her and make his or her job today a little easier.
