Winning is hard and a measure of success – at any level and against any opponent.

Some programs make it look easy, week in and week out. Winning is hard for them as well. The “ease” typically is a product that stems from years of hard work and consistently great teaching and coaching – often performed at every level of the program in a community – from youth sports to the varsity level.

We all know these programs. You are probably thinking about a couple of them right now. 

Some programs in the metro area are trying to “turn” their programs around. Some have been trying to figure it out for years, with some excellent coaches. Winning for these programs is unbelievably hard.

We all know these programs. You are probably thinking about a couple of them right now. 

And two weeks into the 2014 season there are programs that have been among the elite in the city but are currently winless – and struggling.

We all know these programs. You are probably thinking about a couple of them right now. 

To the consistent winners: Enjoy the wins. They are all hard fought and special.

To the programs trying to change directions: Keep plugging away. Continue to work hard, and find small victories.

To the coaches leading top programs that are currently struggling: Know that you are the same coach who recently led your team to great seasons, playoff wins, and championships. You didn’t become a “bad” coach in the last two weeks.

To everyone, keep up the good work. Ours is an awesome job, with awesome responsibilities.
