Best Life Lessons Learned From a Sports Dad

 

All three of my kids play youth sports throughout the course of the year. You will find me on the sidelines with a team shirt and whistle as one of the volunteer coaches. I am what you would call a sports dad. For roughly the last 10 years, since our daughter was four, I’ve been coaching my kids and their teammates. My dad did that with my brother and me and I’m glad I am doing the same thing.

Over the years, we’ve created many memories together through youth sports. I’ve been able to be right there with our kids through some of their highs and their lows. I’ve been able to teach them firsthand the fundamentals of the game as well as lessons of teamwork, sportsmanship, and hard work. I’ve been fortunate enough to watch them learn, grow, and develop. But recently, I’ve noticed they are not the only ones learning, growing, and developing. I have experienced the same.

It’s amazing how much I have learned through my time coaching. Here are the best life lessons I’ve learned as a sports dad.

Don’t Blink

 

It may seem like days pass slowly, but years somehow seem to fly by faster than a speeding bullet. That being said, it’s important to pay attention to the present moment and enjoy each day as it comes. Because, before long, those days will turn to years long gone. We love this song from Kenny Chesney and think you will too. While it’s impossible not to blink, we love the message behind his song, “Don’t Blink.”
