.....It took me seven years to recover from the things said and done to me. That is not O.K. It is time to put a stop to this. Coach Cam is not the only one out there verbally abusing student-athletes. It is time to care more about the student-athlete than how many rings are won or trophies are put in the trophy case. If you’re an athletic director, when`s the last time you came in and sat down at a practice? When’s the last time you pulled some student-athletes in your office to check on them?.....
.....Use your power and influence to better impact these student-athletes instead of beating them down. There is a way to push student-athletes in a positive manner without belittling them. Lastly, I ask that you heal. Take the time to figure out why you are hurting other people. Who hurt you? Why are you taking your past wounds and bleeding on other people? You shouldn’t be coaching if it’s causing pain and damage to others..........more
Bethany`s Notes: To all coaches: watch your words. They can build up or tear down. They can motivate and inspire or the complete opposite. Are you prepared to look at yourself in a mirror and understand why you say what you say? Also, if you have past hurt or trauma, consider getting help yourself. It`s okay to not be okay and don`t take it out on someone else.
