National Coaches Day is celebrated in the USA on October 6th. The date attracts everyone involved in the holiday: both coaches and their students. Having a mentor is important at all times! He will always inspire and teach you to work harder to achieve excellent results in any field. The purpose of the holiday is to remember their work and not devalue it not only on a holiday, but on any other day.
National Day was founded in 1972. The proclamation was signed by Richard Nixon, the 37th President of the United States. He carefully treated the introduced date, saying that the coaches are not only professionals in their field and teachers, but also good friends who instill in students the most important qualities.
Any sport requires a leader who can clearly set goals and implement them. We are talking not only about mobile sports, but also about intellectual ones (for example, chess). The teacher prepares athletes, draws up a training schedule, prepares, evaluates the data of a particular person and his progress. Many athletes share that once the words of a coach are echoed in difficult moments of life, forcing them to go further with their heads up.
A wonderful example: Herb Brooks, an American hockey player and coach. Gained wide popularity after the victory of the US hockey team over the Soviet team at the Winter Olympics in 1980. The event is remembered as the “Miracle on Ice”.
Did you know that:
- Vicente del Bosque, after being fired from Real Madrid, could not even go out to the balcony, because it offered a wonderful view of the club’s training camp;
- in 2005, Jose Mourinho was disqualified and could not manage the Chelsea team on the field, but he found an extraordinary solution – he climbed into a laundry basket and entered the locker room;
- Spanish coach Juande Ramos was fired from three different teams on October 26, 2007, 2008, 2009.
How to celebrate
Everyone remembers their coach – if you don’t play sports or are in different cities, visit a mentor! Buy a memorable gift and tell us how it has affected your life. Talk to your children about this profession – perhaps one of them will be a future genius coach?
