We’ve been getting some really positive comments about the blog recently from teachers, both within the comments sections as well as on the facebook fan page. It had always been a goal of ours here to try to promote the blog through school boards because of the importance of this message for youth and that’s something that we’ll begin trying to do a bit more systematically here in the near future. But to that end, I did want to mention a few things. First, if you are a teacher and you see the value in this message, it would be very much appreciated if you would consider passing on a link to your own school board recommending it as a source of information – and not just for coaches and physical education teachers but for anyone interested in ethics and/or wellness.
I also wanted to say that in coming up with the original concept for this site, we planned on making Olympic sport a big part of it largely because of the impact of hearing from really successful athletes, perhaps someone you’ve even watched on television. However, if you refer to the Great Examples section, there are some really powerful and really meaningful stories coming from all ages and all levels of ability. With that in mind I would like to invite anyone who has a story to tell about character, sportsmanship, positive attitude, perspective, the challenge or the value of sport, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If it’s a fit with the Sport At Its Best philosophy, we’d love to hear from you.
Thanks very much for the support and all the comments we’ve had so far. Keep them coming!
