Why do you coach for KCSG?  I believe in the vision and mission of the club.  One of the most enjoyable things in life is to see a player smile, improve, and love the game as much as I do.  I thank KCSG for allowing me that joy, and all the parents and players for allowing me to be a small part in their lives.
