“As a member of a club, participating in speeches, evaluations and all other duties is what it is all about. As a coach, you are put in a situation where you have to observe all the activities and provide encouragement and helpful suggestions at all levels. It gives insight into just what it takes to make a good club. It is a rewarding experience when you are able to see the progress, however small it is.”
