Being a youth sports coach for over 16 years, I have seen a lot of great things in my time. Things like watching youngsters get their first hit in coach pitch baseball or seeing a six year-old make it through an entire wrestling match without getting pinned. For volunteer coaches, watching kids make the most of their experience in youth athletics can be pure joy.
