Lethbridge Herald - - Herald Sport - LETH­BRIDGE SPORT COUN­CIL

Na­tional Coaches Week is Sept. 19-27 and the Leth­bridge Sport Coun­cil is cel­e­brat­ing the pos­i­tive im­pact coaches have on ath­letes and the com­mu­nity.

LSC is cel­e­brat­ing the ded­i­ca­tion, wis­dom, and ac­com­plish­ments of over 30 lo­cal coaches this week. These coaches rep­re­sent many dif­fer­ent sports in the com­mu­nity, from the grass­roots level to elite sport. LSC will be shar­ing a

few of these coach pro­files on its web­site and so­cial me­dia daily through coaches week.

Coach pro­files can be found on our web­site, and more will be added daily, at https://leth­bridge­s­port­coun­cil.ca/news /coaches-week-2020.

LSC said in a new re­lease it reached out to lo­cal ath­letes and asked them to tell them about their coaches. They shared heart-warm­ing sto­ries about why their coach is “More Than a Coach.”

Track and field ath­lete Aaron Her­nan­dez talked about his coach,

Jaime Thomas, who he con­sid­ers not only a coach, but also a men­tor, role model, sup­port sys­tem and friend. Her­nan­dez at­tributes much of his suc­cess on and off the track to his coach.

Pronghorn rugby player Jill Tataryn re­called the last­ing im­pact coach Ric Sug­gitt has on not only her rugby ca­reer, but more im­por­tantly the lives of so many ath­letes, and be­cause he in­spired Lo­gan Boulet to be an or­gan donor, their lega­cies live on be­cause of the in­crease in or­gan donors.

“De­spite the ob­sta­cles sport has faced re­cently, coaches have con­tin­ued to en­gage and in­spire their ath­letes,” said Su­san Ey­mann, LSC ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, in the re­lease. “We are pleased to bring to you a look at what our lo­cal coaches are up to and how in many ways they are #morethana­coach.”
