On Thursday, October 13th, Brookdale Senior Living in Whittier is going to be hosting a Toy Drive to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Whittier. Coach Mike will be there to support my friends Peter Rodriguez and Tom Rios in this event. Peter and others will be joining me on Kidz “n” Sports on Wed. August 24th.
If you are not in the Whittier, CA area, I strongly encourage you to support the Boys and Girls Club in your area. One of my first coaching positions was as a volunteer coach, and referee, for the Miller’s Unit Boys Club in Phoenix, AZ. Boys and Girls Club do a lot of great things for those kids whose families may not be able to afford travel or club sports. They have events for all the kids. Click the link below for the pdf flyer for this event. Invite your friends and family to join in too.
Boys and Girls Club Toy Drive
We’re going to have a great show this coming Wednesday, August 10th. First up I’ll be talking with LA Times High School Sports Columnist Eric Sondheimer. Eric has been a guest on Kidz “n” Sports in the past. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to our young players. Click here to see some of Eric’s articles in the L.A. Times.
During the 2nd half of the show, I’ll be talking with UMass-Lowell Assistant Softball Coach Bill Vasko. Bill has served both as head and assistant coaches in the college ranks and was also involved with the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division II Recruiting Committee, serving as the NCAA Division II chairperson in 2010-11. Bill is also the founder of Coachbook, a networking site for coaches. Click here to see Bill’s bio on the UMass-Lowell web site.
One of the topics that will come up this Wednesday is collegiate recruiting and it’s impact on youth sports.
