“A good coach can change a game, a great coach can change a life,” said 7- time national coach of the year winner, John Wooden. Becoming a coach is a big responsibility, but a potentially rewarding opportunity. For coaches to be successful they need to care about their students, they need to adapt to their students, and they need to be present. This year we had over 100 volunteer coaches and 34 paid instructors dedicate their time to help others build character and improve golf skills. Many of our coaches have been with us year after year, season after season, and it is this commitment and continuity that has helped thousands of participants over the years.
On Saturday, November 5th, FTSV hosted an event to celebrate and appreciate our coaches’ commitment to the program. Over 35 adult coaches attended the event. We had a BBQ, games, and activities for the coaches to enjoy and take part in together.
“This event is hopefully one of many appreciative events in the future,” said Program Director, Chris Moreno-Hunt. “We are fortunate to have a team of coaches who care, and who are positive-minded people. It is a privilege to work with all of them.”
