President’s Message

Dear TABC Members,
Finally, the season starts! You have worked hard to condition, train, strengthen and educate your team, while making it a healthy and enjoyable experience for them. Because of you, they are pumped, trained and ready. How about you? Enthusiastic, energized, and focused or stressed, sleep deprived, overwhelmed, can’t remember your last meal? Being a coach can be physically and emotionally draining. Are you taking care of yourself? As a coach, no one knows more about defense than you. Your entire day is one defensive move after the next. Maybe we need a lesson on “offense”! If you had an athlete who was facing difficult emotional stress, working/studying very long hours, struggling to keep up with school work, too busy to eat healthy, not sleeping well and generally not themselves, would you expect their very best performance on the court? What would you do? Consider these few options to help take care of yourself as you juggle family, basketball, leading, teaching, and mentoring…just to name a few responsibilities.

1. Listen – Be available to listen. Pay attention to the “talk” you have with yourself throughout the day. Is it positive? Is it optimistic? Is it helpful?

2. Move – Find one particular area of concern or problem to solve, such as poor nutrition. Now take the offensive…don’t just stand there, “move”. It’s only one small effort, but you can control it.

Teamwork – You are not alone! Your “team” can include anyone, but a variety of personalities and skills will always prove useful. Reach out to someone who seems to be struggling. Ask for help when you need it.

See you on the courts,
Angela Spurlock, President, TABC
