Volunteering, for the past 10 years, as a coach for the Edmonton Amateur Baseball Association has been rewarding for me in many different ways. Having been involved in minor sports the majority of my life, as a player and as a coach, I found the transition to coaching a natural progression. It can be a huge time commitment to make to be a volunteer in any sport or activity. Coaching is more than just about teaching skills of a sport, it’s also teaching the life skills. We need our youth to follow in our steps with their desire to volunteer, no matter what they choose as their cause – this is what makes Canada a better place.
