“It’s important that they have to be ready physically and mentally but the most important one that a coach cannot teach a person is effort. Effort is the will that has to come from each player, each athlete, because we can teach skill, we can teach technique, but effort has to come from them.” With these words of encouragement from Mr. Serratos, athletic director, the teams are off to their first games.
