January 8, 2014 – The Woodridge Park District recognizes the importance of volunteer coaches in our athletic programs. Coaching youth sports is more than just teaching the X’s and the O’s. Good Sportsmanship, a positive attitude and self-discipline are expected by parents and nowadays expectations couldn’t be higher. We would like to recognize the efforts of some of our coaches and so we are looking for nominations.

what he/she preaches?

• Leadership: Does the coach promote a positive atmosphere among the team, fans and parents? Does the coach create an upbeat image of coaching and the role of the coach?
