What do you want to celebrate about your athlete?

I am the head coach for Jack’s hockey team and I’m also his mom. I feel like I don’t get to brag about him as much as I would like because it would look like favoritism.

 

He is our goalie and has been on skates for 10 years but has only been in the net for 2. He’s very hard on himself as he is relatively new to the goal but has taken to it incredibly well.

Last night, at the end of very hard practice, we did a shoot-out. If you missed, you have to lay on your back with your feet in the air until someone scores. HE TOOK DOWN THE ENTIRE TEAM AND THE STUDENT COACHES! BOOM!

 

The way the whole team congratulated him afterward made my year. He needed that and earned it! I’m so proud of his hard work and dedication! Go Norse!

"I am proud of Jack. He took on the role of goalie last year when we didn’t have one and has excelled ever since!"

- Mom (and Coach)

What life skills do you see your athlete learning through sports?

He’s learning teamwork and dedication.

What is a character trait your Athlete has that you adore?

Robotics engineer.

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know.

I want him to know even though I am his coach, I’m his mom first and he is the brightest part of our lives every day! We love him so much!
