Track & Field

I can’t tell you how many times through the years that these would have come in handy! Even to gift as a personal and individual card from your athlete means so much to coaches at all age levels.

A thank you can never be given too many times for the people who invest so much time into our kids! Coaching is a thankless job and it is so important! The character, integrity and work ethic my kids’ possess today is largely due to having some coaches who took the time to teach them the right way to earn what they wanted!

I can remember just about every coach our boys has had through the years, even the sports that they never stuck with for more than one season. As I pulled together memorabilia for our oldest son’s senior year party last year, I found his very first team photos (above)!

I mean, I can’t even with the cuteness!! I was pregnant with our middle son, Caleb, when T played on this team. He only ended up playing a few seasons of Soccer until he fell in love with Basketball. I also found this little gem:

That was his first and only season of baseball (or t-ball). I kept his little hat all these years! I probably still have his shirt somewhere too. GAH I CANNOT STAND THE CUTENESS!!

If you’ve ever coached at that itty bitty level you know it’s more like herding feral cats than anything else. Those coaches have the patience of SAINTS! So, my point in all of this is that coaches should be thanked and those cards are free and printable and make super easy homemade gifts for coaches! It won’t take you much time and I guarantee your coach will truly appreciate it!
