Forget me. Abby Wambach

This is a powerful ad. Watch it.

How many times have we witnessed a coach who hung on too long, a director who never let go, a staff that did not groom the next generation to take a tournament into the next generation?

Why do we do this? Why do we do the things we do? To ensure our own legacy or ensure that our accomplishments are a solid stepping stone for the next generation to move the sport of soccer forward? Why are you producing your soccer tournament?

Developing a young staff to take your place is the best way you can ensure your soccer tournament will thrive. Let go; let others soar knowing you did that.

Something to think on.
