What a great book, Jamy! Having two sons, both competitive soccer players, I just wish they could have read your book at an earlier age. I've always tried to teach them leadership skills, but you've hit the nail on the head. Thanks again for all of the insights!Chris Oliver

I always wanted to see my daughters become more successful, not just as athletes but as people. As a coach, I wanted the same thing with my athletes. Jamy's book includes a bunch of ideas on how to make this happen.

Good leadership ensures that team morale stays above the normal level at all times. It makes other team members want to be more like them and perform well. It creates an environment between teammates so they work to achieve team goals. Good leadership helps a child achieve both.

Building a foundation for leadership skills at an early age is critical to long-term success in athletics, work and life in general. Coach Bechler taught my daughter the importance of developing the attitude of a leader through multiple opportunities and training at Marion High School. The skills that she has acquired and the appreciation she has for leadership in any life activity has inspired my 5-sport, honor student athlete to raise the bar and command more from herself and those around her. Thank you Coach Bechler.
This isn't just about sports, this is about our kids and developing the next generation of leaders. Sports is just a microcosm of life. Sports not only builds character but reveals it. We have a responsibility to help our youth understand how to be people of character so that they can become people of influence so that they can change not only their teams, but transform their lives.
