What does your coach do that makes him/her a great coach?

She has a job and a family but is still able to find time to coach our team and put in so much extra time that a lot of people would not be willing to give up.

Haylee has always been a great coach, and one thing I love that makes her great is that she always has some kind of advice to help me or someone else get better at the sport they want to excel in! Right away when you come off the field or come back from your at bat at the plate she has something to say to you that can help you adjust your swing or help you get to the ball faster in the field! She is always there to help you with anything you need.

Pick 3 words that describe your coach. Explain why you chose each word.

Passionate – She loves softball more than anyone I’ve ever met and shows it through her passion to coach.
Intense – She loves to win and has the biggest drive to win.
Smart – She picks up on things so quickly and is always able to help us with anything

Why do you want to say “thanks, coach”?

I want to say thanks to coach Haylee for all the things she has done for softball! She has put so much effort into building the game of softball in Manitoba! She takes time away from her family to help us young athletes get better and achieve our goals in the sport of softball. She pushes us to be our best and I couldn’t thank her enough for that.
