Thankful Thursdays ~ Good Kids ~ Good Sports

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

I love that my son John Dunham always makes time for his children's activities. He stepped up to the post once again to help coach Handsome Hudson's Summer Basketball team. WAYA (West Austin Youth Association) has a wonderful program and facility in West Austin.

The goal of the program is to teach great kids to be good sports and instill the values of integrity and sportsmanship through competition and interaction.

FYI: It didn't hurt they won their game and had a chance to celebrate a team members birthday!

So much fun!  Basketball is my favorite sport and I definitely love watching kids play the game, although I rarely get the opportunity to do it these days.

Hi Dorie- good for John Dunham for stepping up to the plate!  This is not just an investment in Hudson's future but all of the team members.

Dorie I helped coach several of the teams my two boys were on.  I miss those days.

I think it is important to get kids involved in sports, or activities that teach them to be good sports.  My kids were all competitive swimmers.  It was valuable in teaching them to be good sports.

Thank you Myrl Jeffcoat ....I couldn't agree more that kids need to be invloved in sports or any activity that teach them to be good sports.

Teach them good sportsmanship and teamwork when young and they will practice it for a life time. Thanks for the post Dorie, it made me smile!
