As a youth basketball coach, you have one of the most important and exciting jobs in the world!
You'll be teaching habits that will stick with these kids for the rest of their lives. And whether you like it or not, you'll be setting an example and teaching kid's lessons about life (good and bad). Kids are impressionable. They pick up on things.
You have an obligation and responsibility to teach them the right things - in both basketball and life.
When you think about it, teachers would do anything to get the enthusiasm that you get from your players. Kids actually like and want to play basketball.
Your players look up to you. They listen to you. And you have an amazing opportunity to make a POSITIVE impact on their lives!
You have a very important and rewarding job!
