Consider Nominating A Coach Who Makes A Difference
Do you know a coach who strives to win, but more importantly teaches life lessons through sports? Is there anyone at the school who you feel already embodies what it is to be a Double-Goal Coach®? Click here for more information about Double-Goal Coach® and to nominate a coach. Boys' Soccer Coach Reza Ghasemi was one of 50 coaches recognized last year as a Double-Goal Coach® and this year, one of the 50 National Double-Goal Coaches will be awarded a grand prize of $10,000 made possible by Taube Family Foundation. $2,500 will go directly to the coach, and $7,500 the coach will designate for the school/youth sports organization of his or her choosing.
