Attention Coaches!

USA Hockey requires all coaches to complete the following steps: 

Take The Quiz

Take The Quiz Here's something to think about:

1. Name ten people who have won a Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

2. Name the last five Heisman Trophy winners.

3. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor or actress.

4. Name the last five winners of the World Series.

How did you do? The point is none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. They're the best in their fields, but the applause fades and achievements are forgotten.

Now here's another quiz:

1. List a few teachers who guided you in school.

2. Name three people who have helped you through your career and business.

3. Think of five people who have made you feel appreciated. 4. Name three heroes whose stories have inspired you.

Are these questions easier to answer than the first four questions? Of course!

The people who make a difference in your life aren't the ones with the most credentials, fame or money. They're the ones who care.
