From the Team Sports Email Bag

We love hearing from our volunteer coaches, parents and participants! Here are a few emails that brightened the days of our Team Sports Staff lately. Team Sports staff Sean Williams, Seth Dodson and Elyse Bairley hold themselves to high customer service standards with Rec&Ed coaches, parents and participants. 

To Elyse and staff, 
I just wanted you to know what a great experience I had coaching baseball this season.   All of the parents were extremely supportive and the coaches and parents from the other teams were great as well.  I expected some resistance to a female coach in boy’s baseball, but it was a complete non-issue.  I actually enjoyed it much more than coaching my 14 U girls – 10 year old boys don’t roll their eyes and give nearly as much attitude.  
Thank you for all the time, effort and coordination that goes into what you and all the others do over there at Rec&Ed.  I appreciate all the communication and quick responses to all of my inquiries - it was my first year coaching in Rec&Ed so I had a lot of questions.  I also appreciated that you were able to accommodate my other coaching commitments as I never had any overlap for the days I need off for my other team.  The fields were all in great condition and the umpires were on time and did a fantastic job too.Please pass this along to your team.I look forward to next season as does my son!
Thank you,
Lori Harrison – boys 4th grade baseball coach

(To a Rec&Ed baseball coach, cc’d to us),
I wanted to thank you for a great season!  As you know, it was Michael’s first year playing Rec&Ed baseball and you made it a great experience for all of us.  As a new family added to a team that had been together for years, you always made us feel welcome and part of the group. I felt like you really made the extra effort for Michael and I really appreciated it. Your game recaps and organization throughout the season were stellar and Rec&Ed was fortunate to have you as one of their coaches for so many years!
Congrats on winning the championship, the awesome season record and overall, thank you for a great season. I wish you and your family all the best!
Kelly Michaels Soluk - parent

Dear Elyse,
