Greetings from CoachDeck!

Thinking about a great, inexpensive end-of-the-year gift to thank your hard-working volunteer coaches? Already looking ahead to the spring season and wondering about new coach training tools? Consider CoachDeck! Coaches everywhere love them and organizations that use our product report that better-run practices mean more kids and coaches return year-after-year.

In this issue: New contributor, Ihor Chyzowich, provides an amusing and lighthearted article detailing why it might not be so bad to see kids all packed together on the soccer field. Brian Gotta writes about when adults yell at referees - even when they're kids. And, in the first in a series, Dr. Alan Goldberg provides tools for coping with the mental anguish that accompanies injuries to youth in sports.
