The Fourth Annual Breakfast with the Champions was held Tuesday, May 9th at Target Field. The event featured Chad Greenway as the guest speaker for the event. Greenway discussed his upbringing on a hog farm in South Dakota and the impact it made on him that the whole community was involved and supportive, as well as his climb to the NFL and his role as a leader on the team.
Ironically, Greenway was introduced to Positive Coaching Alliance a few years back when he attended a workshop while he was coaching youth sports. “I learned new mechanisms to coach that I had never thought about, although I’ve been around coaches my whole life.”
He went on to talk animatedly about his role as a coach to his daughters, and emphasized that the lessons taught during youth sports shape the next generation. He pointed out the importance of continued growth saying, “There are far more lessons to be learned from losing than from winning” and that giving credit for effort is a much better focus and outcome for athletes.
Fargo Angels Hockey was represented at the event by Mike Gallagher and Mark Olsonawski. The Angels are the only PCA partner in North Dakota.
