Attention “Coachaholics”

Are you one to consistently raise your hand when the call out is made for coaches of your children’s various athletic teams?

If you answered “yes”, then I think you will find this column from Phil Taylor in last week’s Sports Illustrated as entertaining as I did --

Those of us who regularly volunteer to coach youth sports in our communities all know one another. We know all of our compulsive tendencies toward helping our children advance in athletics. We all know our passion for the game.

However, this column reaches into how we find the balance in our lives between work and finding time to effectively accomplish all of this. While we all enjoy coaching, it is work and sometimes our real work gets confused in the midst of our more fun work. Enjoy the read!
