This is why we do what we do! A note from the athletic director at Gardena High School:
“I just wanted to say thank you for your generous donation that helped pay for baseballs, bats and gloves for our student athletes at Gardena High School. We sincerely appreciate your support!” #YouthSports#LATLC#TrialLawyersCare#TLC#baseball#gardenahighschool
Drill Tip: the purpose of doing drills in this manor, is to give the the athlete a more direct feel of that particular drill and purpose of the drill and it's benefit. Also for them to have the athlete be intentional in emphasizing proper posture/form of running. Emphasizing technique and then once you have the athlete pull back some during the drill, release them. They should flow into a faster moment of the drill, keeping upper body nice and tall, head/eyes should be seeing level, shoulders relaxed as possible. This is great to do for #Beginners, but also #advance and elite athletes.
Shout out to Willa Cather 7th grader Djaree who set an #OWLSLeague record last week with 9 goals in a single game! He had a special jersey on yesterday to commemorate the achievement...keep making Chicago Public Schools proud kid! #OWLSLeague
This is Khia Johnson. She’s has the heart of a lion and the spirt of an angel, her smile can light up a room and turn anyone’s frown upside down she loves everyone and everyone loves her. On May 12, 2018 she was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor that covered her left kidney, cancer has invaded her body and yet, she still shows a gleaming smile. She underwent surgery on May 15, 2018 to remove her entire left kidney and to have a port placed in her body to receive chemotherapy and radiation in the weeks and months to come.

Self Confidence in Sport
Want to build self-confidence in your children? Want to really help them feel good about themselves? If so, then start catching them when they do things right. Start noticing the little things that they do well. Underline their positive behaviors, actions and accomplishments. Accept them for who they are and appreciate what they do. Please don’t waste your time and kill their confidence by comparing them with those around them. Comparing your child to their friends, teammates or classmates is a very subtle, and powerful. The messages embedded in your comparisons do not get lost on them. Indirectly you’re telling them that you think they aren’t good enough. Whether you mean this message to be delivered or not is irrelevant. Why? Because the real meaning of any communication is the response you get. Your intentions in this case are meaningless.
Don’t make it your mission in life to free this potential up! Let the teachers and coaches push your child to greatness. That’s their job, NOT yours. Please understand that I’m not saying you don’t have a role here. On the contrary, you have a HUGE role in helping your child feel good about him/herself. It’s your job to build self-esteem, appropriately. You do this primarily by providing your children with an appropriate role model. Model in your own life and with your own behaviors this reach for greatness. It’s not your job to enlighten them as to all the things that they did wrong in their games. Don’t ever get yourself into the situation where you are forcing your “knowledge” on them. If they make it clear to you that they do not want your feedback as far as their sport goes, then save yourself the aggravation and save them the heartache.
