We have a lot in common. Through your involvement in youth sports, you've made a difference in hundreds of kids' lives. It is CoachDeck's mission to help volunteer coaches everywhere make a difference too - by providing the tools that will enable them to create a fun and positive experience for the kids who call them "Coach." In addition to our extremely popular deck of 52 drill cards, we aim to offer a full array of information and products that will enrich the youth recreational sports community. And this first issue of On Deck, our free, informative, monthly newsletter, is one more step in that direction. We hope you enjoy it and ask that you share it with others.
