"There is almost no person in a young person's life besides your parents, who plays such an important role in shaping the character of young people than coaches. Developing a pipeline of women who are coaches, who connect with kids, build skills, build teamwork, I mean, that's what you need to be successful in life, and there is no more important mission."
