"After more than a decade of coaching and volunteering my time for nearly 500 youth, it has become clear to me that many parents and spectators around youth sports fail to understand that some successful programs are trying to accomplish more than a philosophy of building professional athletes. For me, the first priority has been and remains, to mentor and foster good young men and women with team camaraderie, discipline, good work ethics, character on and off of a playing field, academic achievement and unwavering support from parents for their child and all children. Please join me, regardless of your youth program, in advocating and strengthening these basic ethics for our youth." -- Respectfully yours, Coach Steve Korbel
