Description

The bestselling little authors of Thanks to My Hockey Dad and I Love My Hockey Mom discovered they forgot to thank someone.? Oops!? In turns out that they forgot to thank all the coaches, those special volunteers who have dedicated countless hours to making them better hockey players (and better people).

The kids, in remembering their coaches, interestingly enough, don’t thank them for winning games, as much as they are thanked for the fun tournaments, silly memories, and their kindness, advice and patience.

The kids’ words are full of 9-year-old wisdom, honesty and humour, and their accompanying illustrations are charming.? Even the most serious coach will have to laugh at being thanked for “man to man talks, brightening my day” and “for keeping the game safe by pointing out when the refs miss a penalty.”? They will also, if they any kind of heart at all, be moved by the player who thanks his coach “for not getting mad at me when I take a penalty.”

Thanks to my Hockey Coach is a unique book that reminds us that, just as moms and dads do so much to help their kids succeed and have fun in sports, coaches are deserving of our thanks and praise.? It reminds us, from the kids’ perspective, of what it means to be a good coach.

We are role models, all of us, and they watching, learning and imitating, for good and bad.

Thanks to My Hockey Coach is the perfect gift book for every head coach, assistant coach, trainer, and hockey mom and dad.? The back pages of the book will allow the player to personalize his or her own message, with text and art, to their coach.
