Off-Season Tradition: Marriage Renewal

SportsLeader has an off-season tradition called the Coaches Marriage Renewal evening ... the basic gist of it is:

1. Gather coaches and their spouses either at a restaurant or a private home
2. Dinner or coffee
3. Each coach gets up in front of the small group, grabs a rose and publicly brags on his wife. "Honey, I love you, I'm proud of you, you're beautiful, I appreciate  all the sacrifices you make for me, etc.
4. Each coach speaks for 5 or so minutes and then hands his wife the rose, a hug and then another coach goes.
5. After all have spoken bring out a wedding style cake ..

This is an opportunity. Many times in the coaching profession marriages suffer due to the time commitment, etc. The better husbands and fathers we are - the better coaches we will be.

If you would like some more information on this activity just let me know.
