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."

How Strengthening Relationships with Boys Can Help Them Learn

Ultimately, what boys really need to thrive is a strong connection to at least one stable, loving adult, says Reichert. “Here’s what we are trying to accomplish: every boy known and loved, every boy having the sense that someone has ‘got him’that someone who knows who he his and what he’s facing and really cares.”  They need a relational anchor, and parents, teachers and coaches can all be “that someone” in the life of a boy.
