Super Bowl Sunday, Bill Walsh and a Chuckle or Two




Bill Walsh, one of the best ever coaches



Bill Walsh, that's the coach of coaches. 
He wrote some very positive advice for 
teachers and everyone who works with kids. 
 

"Kids who take part in any sport get to feel 
the euphoria of victory, but they also learn 
how to deal with loss."
 
"Having to play a role determined by coaches, whether it is exactly what a player hopes for or not, teaches the acceptance of authority -- but not an automatic, robotic acceptance."
 
"Athletes have to also understand that anxiety is not a flaw, and that overcoming it is 
 possible -- and sometimes a lot easier than they thought."
 
"The social elements of team sports have far-reaching effects. Team members develop the ability to communicate under stress. They learn to respect others whether they like them or not, and if a team is ethically coached, its members also are taught to respect their opponents no matter how fierce the rivalry."
