The San Gabriel Valley Jr. All-American Executive Board welcomes all participants, parents, grandparents, friends, families, coaches, athletic directors, Board Members, and Officials to the 2017 Season.
As the Executive Board and I reflect on the past and the great accomplishments this organization has made over the years the harder we collectively want future successes to be even greater. Our Executive Board strives to make every decision in the best interest of the athlete in our program. While short term success of winning and championships seems important to some, the long term values such as sportsmanship, scholastics, dedication, discipline, and team work are what we hope to instill in our athletes and volunteers.
As former participants look back reflect on their years in our program the memories which they share often reside outside the lines of the football field or cheer mat. Very rarely do the athletes discuss or relive the winning, the scores, or the championships. They recall the hard work required to get to the championship. They recall the time their teammates carried them off the field after an injury. They recall how football or cheer kept them out of trouble and gave them a path for high school sports and/or academic success. They recall the values and discipline the coach taught them throughout the years.
We as the Executive Board along with our City Boards and staff need to think beyond short term successes and remind ourselves, our athletes, and our parents that we use the field as a classroom to teach these youth important values for the next phase of their lives and beyond. Long term success and values should not be sacrificed for the short term gratification of winning at all costs.
I challenge all of our parents and staff to focus on the long term values we can instill in the athletes through a competitive sport where sportsmanship and academic success are more important than a scoreboard at the end of the game.
I look forward to a great 2017 Season and wish everyone the best of luck.
