A Coach is someone who always makes you do what you don’t want to do, so you can be who you’ve always wanted to be.


Being a coach, this is absolutely my favorite quotation.
I don’t think it’s possible to better emphasyze the constant ‘conflict’ between coaches and players.

We try every second to make you better and the medicine we use, is not a magic pill that you can swallow at every practice.
Our medicines are only sweat, suffering, never giving up and, after that, trying to repeat it BETTER.
This was the ‘cure’ that was given to me, first by my father, then by my coaches and the result was successful.

When we tell you to put your athletic bags in a line and not thrown all around, when we ask you to flex your leg, snap your knee, lock your ankle when you shoot, not close your eyes, look around, not throw the ball away, collect, pass back, switch, chest it down, over lap, push up, go back, jump, trap before shooting, cross or mark, we only do this so that you, CAN BE WHO YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE.
