If you or your child is part of a sports team then you know how much work the coach does to help each player grow and to lead the team to success.
It is important to let the coach know how much you appreciate him or her, and here are some tips to help you do it.
Write a Thank You Note to Your Coach
Writing a thank you note is easier than you might think. Here are some tips to keep in mind.
- Keep it short. A few paragraphs are usually sufficient. Of course, if you feel the need to write a longer note that is fine too.
- Handwritten is best. While so many people are now sending their thank you notes via text or email, neither can beat the personal touch of a hand-written note.
- If possible, mail the note to the coach's home or office. If not, it is acceptable to hand the coach the note before or after a game or practice.
