Greetings from CoachDeck!

Coaches meetings coming up? Nothing brings more excitement to the room than opening up a box of fresh CoachDecks and handing them out to your volunteers.

In this issue: Tony Earp's second in an excellent three-part series about playing soccer in college focuses on three important considerations every athlete should take into account. Brian Gotta follows up his "Letter from a Volunteer Coach" article which went viral with a Letter from a Player to a Volunteer Coach. And new contributor Stanley Popovich's, "Do Not Let Fear Be a Factor in Your Sport" is a brilliant read.
