Congratulations on behalf of the CSA Board and myself on these accomplishments above!
There are numerous other success stories and examples of player/team development over the course of the past 365 days from our club that might not get awarded, but you as coaches see and are aware of them.
Celebrate those! Celebrate them with the player(s), your team, and yourself as you all do a very good job at furthering the mission of CSA and making each player the best that they can be.
Hope to get a chance to talk to all of you and/or your staffs at the Coaches Appreciation dinner this Tuesday evening:)
