We would like to offer a special opportunity to you presented by Coach Wells
(Read letter below &
respond by November 1st)
Hello Bear Parents!
As you read this email I hope that it finds you and your family in great health and spirits. I’m writing to tell you about what I feel is a really unique and awesome opportunity to connect with your child. On a former coaching staff I was a member of, we had the parents write a letter to their child telling them how proud they were of them and how much they loved them and why. I always thought it was pretty cool, until my son was on the team and that’s when I felt the full impact of this letter.
(I have attached the letter I wrote to my son his junior year and the letter his mother wrote his senior year, as an example.)
We looked at it as a chance to tell our son things that we wish we could tell him every moment of every day, but the reality is as kids get older and get busier with more responsibilities, sometimes even having dinner with them every night becomes difficult, and before you know it you’re planning a graduation party. The challenge will be that we have a limited time frame. We would like to pass the letters out to the players Thursday, November 2nd (before our week 10 game), so we would need to have all letters in the day before. Also, we are using this year as a testing ground to see what the response is like, so this will be a varsity only affair this year. If things go as planned, we hope to make this a 9-12 event in the future. If this sounds like something you would like to see come to the Tahoma Football program, please respond by writing a letter to your player & getting it to Coach Wells or Sherrie Traweek (MVTB President) NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 1st! Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
