By simply participating in a sport, will a person automatically learn life lessons and increase character skills like discipline, cooperation, and loyalty?
Participation in sports can, and very well should teach character. But without the proper guidance from mentors, the sports experience for many boys and girls can do more harm than good. The good news is there is a simple solution, and all it requires is the proper perspective.
I believe deep down we wall know what the most important things in life are and we truly want to live a life of joy and meaning. I hope this book helps inspire us to evaluate our perspective, put first things first, and rise above our storms as we live our legacy. The Ride Home encourages everyone to use the sports experience to intentionally build character and teach life lessons so that players, parents, and coaches can all enjoy the journey!
