What’s the biggest problem we’re facing in America today?

Tony Dungy hits it pretty dead on here.

What we can do to help is mentoring. If every head and assistant coach takes mentoring seriously on their teams, we can make a huge difference. We can teach all these young men that being a faithful husband and father is the happiest and most fulfilling way to live - not the lies they too often see ...

I volunteer with a boys club and we have a boy on our team with no dad at home. He is a real handful but he is also a tremendously talented young man with a huge heart and I see him growing week to week by all of the great examples of the fathers who also volunteer. You can see that this is making an impact on him and you can see how happy he is to be a part of the group.

Here is the testimony of a coach who want to be part of the solution:


I had the privilege of attending the Sports Leader clinic hosted in February. We have been a participant in the Sports Leader program for going on 3 years, and believed that we were maximizing the programs potential. After attending the clinic, I realized we had only scratched the surface of Sports Leader. The lineup of presenters did a great job of bringing this to my attention, and inspiring me to take it to the next level. We have begun to implement some of the ideas we brought home from the clinic, and look forward to better serving our kids with the help of Sports Leader.  

God bless,

Tim Murphy
