class="gkFeaturedItemTitle" SPORTS FOR ALL: Coaches Are Teachers in Sports and Life

  • Topic: Sports
  • By Chuck Lyons

  Some people have said coaches in sports are teachers in sports and in life.

  A coach, regardless of what age level, can have a positive or negative influence on team members that include players, managers, stat crew and more. A local school district gave its coaches about $50 per year increase in pay and thought that was good. Even the union members in the same contract, who many make thousands more in comparison to coaches, were happy because they got more than a $1,000 a year raise.Coaches are teachers in sport. One coach said they were getting paid a few dollars an hour if you divided their stipend into hours put in coaching. Many coaches know their "job" includes not only teaching specific skills for that sport, it also reinforces the life skills the parents are teaching their children at home.

By SHEL SEGAL
MONTEBELLO – With a 6-4 victory over Riverside Poly on Feb. 25, the Schurr girls water polo team was crowned CIF-Southern Section Division 2 champions, the first such triumph in the school’s history.

“It was unbelievable,” said Kezman, who is planning on attending the University of La Verne in the fall and studying kinesiology. “For me personally, my heart was racing. It was a hectic day. There was a lot of negativity, people saying that we can’t do it. But we believed in our team and we were able to step up.”
