John Burke<br />

Executive Director<br />

As the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong> celebrates its fiftieth<br />

anniversary of our Hall of Fame with the induction of five outstanding<br />

members of our profession it behooves us to consider the kinship we all share<br />

with our brothers and sisters in this, the greatest of all livelihoods.<br />

Congratulations go out to Brian Christensen,<br />

Greg King, Mike Pallotto, Sue Snyder, and Scott<br />

Yates on their recent induction into the CHSCA<br />

Hall of Fame but there is so much more to this<br />

honor this year. Thanks to the leadership of<br />

Bob Marken, Hall of Fame Committee Chair, all<br />

known Hall of Famers were invited back to the<br />

banquet and were recognized for their<br />

achievements. Coach Marken researched<br />

addresses and emails and compiled a very<br />

accurate listing of our current Hall of Famers<br />

and went to great lengths to invite them back to<br />

the 2013 banquet. Once again our organization<br />

honored our Level IV Achievement ring<br />

winners and Bob Bledose, Wayne Marshall,<br />

Kent Smith and Ken Vecchio were presented<br />

their beautiful rings and for the first time our<br />

eight scholarship winners were introduced at<br />

the banquet. The CHSCA scholarship program,<br />

conducted by Herman and Patricia Motz, was<br />

once again a remarkable success. Special thanks<br />

also go out to Tom and Shannon Southall for<br />

their assistance related to the banquet’s awards<br />

and video presentation and to Paul ‘Tiny’<br />

Koehler for his once-again master of<br />

ceremonies performance.<br />

The word ‘sodality’ refers to a fellowship, a<br />

fraternity or sorority, a kinship of sorts for<br />

those affiliated with a particular group or<br />

profession. As we set out to discover the details<br />

of our current Hall of Famers it became<br />

important for us to consider the importance of<br />

helping and communicating with all of our<br />

members and to meet their needs, regardless of<br />

the situation. With our membership nearing<br />

3,000, we all know of coaches who may have<br />

fallen on hard times or those who might need<br />

some positive reinforcement to help them fight<br />

through adversity. If and when these situations<br />

come up, we would like to encourage all of our<br />

members to contact the CHSCA office in order<br />

for us to send a card, an email or perhaps pick<br />

up the phone and call. Under the guidance of<br />

Dr. Rick Bettger, our organization will contact<br />

those who need help and we will do our best to<br />

make their lives better and more uplifting.<br />

The <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong><br />

<strong>Association</strong> is an adult organization that exists<br />

to serve our members and while we certainly<br />

conduct programs that recognize students, our<br />

main focus will always be providing an outlet to<br />

acknowledge and honor our coaches. We<br />

conduct the state’s ONLY Hall of Fame for<br />

coaches and our longevity and achievement<br />

programs are designed just for this purpose.<br />

To contact Dr. Bettger, please<br />

<strong>Presidents</strong>’ Message<br />

Ed Eastin<br />

CHSCA President<br />

As my time as your President<br />

comes to a close, I am<br />

grateful to have had the<br />

pleasure to work with the<br />

members of the Executive<br />

Board. The <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong><br />

<strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong> is<br />

a strong organization that<br />

provides the coaches of<br />

<strong>Colorado</strong> who are members<br />

with 1st class clinics, benefits, awards and support.<br />

I urge all of you to at some time become involved in<br />

the inner workings of the organization- whether it<br />

be as a board member, sports president, speaker or<br />

volunteer to help where needed. I know many times<br />

we hear how special the coaching fraternity is, but<br />

one of the most enjoyable activities is to sit with a<br />

group of coaches and enjoy their company. There is<br />

nothing like the stories and ideas that we exchange.<br />

We are in the process of honoring the many award<br />

winners, scholarship winners, past hall of fame<br />

winners and the big event of course, the induction<br />

of the Class of 2013 into the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong><br />

<strong>Coaches</strong> Hall of Fame. It is the 50th birthday for<br />

this event. By the time you receive this <strong>Colorado</strong><br />

Coach the event will be history- I hope you attended<br />

because it was the biggest of all time.<br />

This summer, June 4-8, the CHSCA All State games<br />

will be hosted by Adams State University, the first<br />

year of a 5 year contract. Larry Mortensen and his<br />

staff do a great job as the host school. Make sure to<br />

put the trip to Alamosa to watch the best players<br />

from across the state representing all classifications<br />

on your calendar. It’s a great mini vacation.<br />

We will end up the CHSCA year with the All Sports<br />

Clinic on July 25-27. This year we combined the<br />

summer and winter clinic. We have also added field<br />

hockey this year. It is a 3 day clinic and should be a<br />

lot of information and fun to attend. <strong>Coaches</strong> that<br />

coach fall and winter sports will be able to attend<br />

sessions for both sports. A big thank you to Bob<br />

Marken for serving as Clinic Director and doing an<br />

excellent job of organizing this event.<br />

As in every communication, I do want to urge all of<br />

you to take the time to nominate the many member<br />

coaches for the many awards that CHSCA awards<br />

each year. There are many very deserving coaches<br />

that qualify and deserve to be honored. Take a peek<br />

at the CHSCA website and familiarize yourself with<br />

the awards and please nominate a individual that<br />

qualifies. We are in need of nominees for all awards.<br />

I have been a member of CHSCA for over 40 years,<br />

and have built many relationships that are very<br />

special to this day.<br />

In closing, I have some special thanks to several<br />

people, first, to Executive Director John Burke. He<br />

serves as our conscience with finances, organization<br />

and honesty. My thanks to Becky Mudd who has<br />

taken on the job of running the CHSCA website,<br />

and <strong>Colorado</strong> Coach Editor. Becky has served as a<br />

great support system when I wanted someone with a<br />

different viewpoint and wanted an answer dealing<br />

with technology- even though it might mean more<br />

work for her. Next, thanks to Tom Southall for his<br />

diligence as the <strong>Association</strong>’s Treasurer. Tom has<br />

got us up to date with the IRS, and bank accounts.<br />

We no longer have to guess how much money we<br />

have and where we spent it. And last but not least is<br />

Jim Altergott, Immediate Past President. He is first<br />

a friend, but most importantly he is extremely<br />

honest and has given me an honest opinion when I<br />

needed it.<br />

Look forward to seeing all of you at the CHSCA<br />

events. Ed Eastin<br />

As always, please support two of our outstanding<br />

sponsors, MAXPREPS and THE GRAPHIC<br />

Motivation<br />

Becky Mudd<br />

<strong>Colorado</strong> Coach Editor<br />

Firing up the team, rallying the troops, giving that great pre- or post-game speech—some<br />

coaches are natural motivators. It is great fun to be around the coaches who have a knack for<br />

helping athletes believe that they can accomplish more than they think that they can. And<br />

while every coach must motivate their athletes in some way, as coaches we too must be<br />

motivated from game to game, and from year to year. Recently someone asked me “How do<br />

you stay motivated year after year?” I know that I am motivated by the game, the challenges<br />

of each new year, feedback from people I trust, and a fundamental belief that I am doing<br />

more than just teaching a sport to young people.<br />

One thing that motivates me as a coach is the game<br />

itself. Competition is such a motivator and I want<br />

to keep learning. I like to watch other coaches’<br />

practices, and I LOVE the x’s and o’s! I love to<br />

learn new offenses, new defenses, new drills. I love<br />

to hear statistics and tracking of numbers. (Articles<br />

like this one are extremely interesting to me<br />

http://messymatters.com/moneyball/—the math<br />

love must come from a certain other math<br />

teacher/basketball guy I know named Coach<br />

Katte.) Back to my story…I love plays and<br />

strategies and even gimmicks when needed—those<br />

all make the games FUN.<br />

The GAME and all of its<br />

strategies is a great motivator,<br />

but is more than just the game<br />

that keeps a coach coming<br />

back year after year.<br />

Another motivator for a coach<br />

is that you get to start fresh<br />

every season. It is exciting and<br />

challenging to look at what you did in the season<br />

past, and see what you want to do differently or<br />

better in the next season. One thing that I have<br />

learned over the past 19 years coaching high school<br />

basketball is that I learn something new every year.<br />

No matter what I have experienced already,<br />

something new is always around the bend, and that<br />

is a motivator to see what challenge is coming next.<br />

A coach is also human, and therefore is certainly<br />

motivated by feedback, comments and even<br />

“quotes” (that’s why they are called motivational<br />

quotes!) We all have sayings or people who<br />

validate what we do. I value the opinions of people<br />

I am motivated by the<br />

fundamental belief that<br />

high school athletics are<br />

about shaping and<br />

developing young people<br />

for LIFE.<br />

that I trust, and people who know me. What they<br />

say motivates me. Midseason this year I was really<br />

feeling the effects of being away from home so<br />

much with all of our travel, and one of my players’<br />

parents said to me: “Thank your family for allowing<br />

you to be away so much so that our daughter can<br />

have you coach her.” I was so motivated to keep<br />

going because I was reaffirmed that what I was<br />

doing was making a difference.<br />

Finally, and probably most importantly, I am<br />

motivated by the fundamental belief that high<br />

school athletics are about shaping<br />

and developing young people for<br />

LIFE. In each season I love seeing<br />

high schoolers grow and learn and<br />

change; and become decision<br />

makers and leaders and<br />

competitors. Each year I become<br />

so attached to the girls I coach as I<br />

seek to discover how they tick, and<br />

what challenges and motivates<br />

THEM. When the season is going great or going<br />

long, I step back and remember that these girls are<br />

learning about how to go on from here to greater<br />

endeavors. Having been around this long, I now<br />

have players that I keep in touch with who are<br />

coaches, nurses, teachers, artists, business women,<br />

wives, moms, and more. I’d like to think that they<br />

learned a little bit about life by being in our gym<br />

and going through different adversities and<br />

successes together. I am motivated by the fact that<br />

I have a responsibility to these girls and families to<br />

be a teacher, and COACH of the game and more.<br />

What motivates you?<br />

AMY ESTES<br />

After an extensive search and interview process, the CHSCA has hired a<br />

new leader to our ALL STATE GAMES team. Amy Estes is going to<br />

work with both John Burke, the Executive Director and Ed Eastin, the<br />

uniform coordinator, as well as with the CHSCA President and Board in<br />

helping to make the All-State Games a great experience for the athletes.<br />

She will be working to streamline the nomination and selection<br />

processes, as well as will be in charge of all of the information of the<br />

athletes and the week AT the games. Amy is currently the Head Girls’<br />

Soccer Coach at Mullen HS, and previously was the Head Women’s<br />

Coach at Butler College and at Central University, where she did<br />

everything from recruiting to athlete management to game day<br />

responsibilities. Her knowledge of high school and college athletics, as<br />

well as her computer and management skills, will be valuable assets to<br />

our games. She has already been down to Adams State University and<br />

is getting involved in making sure that this year’s games run smoothly<br />

and that all of the athletes have a great experience. A little fun fact is that Amy played in the CHSCA All State<br />

games back in 1993! Amy is married to husband Orlando (who also does some high school coaching) and they<br />

have two children ages 6 and 4.<br />

Special Recognition-<br />

Sandy Beasley worked as the All State Games Director for the CHSCA for nearly 15 years serving the<br />

coaches and student athletes that participated in the games. During her tenure the games were played at<br />

several different venues under different formats. Sandy made adjustments in the program and games to<br />

accommodate these changes and worked in conjunction with the organization to improve the games. She was<br />

much more than an administrator of the games, and was good to personally connect with coaches, athletes,<br />

and parents that participated in the All State Games. Sandy recently resigned from the position. Her<br />

leadership and work in the organization will be missed. For her years of dedication and service, the CHSCA<br />

says THANK YOU.<br />

CHSAA Notes<br />

Compiled by Bert<br />

Borgmann,<br />

Assistant<br />

Commissioner<br />

Initially, I would like to<br />

thank the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong><br />

<strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong><br />

for recognizing me with its Benefactor Award at the<br />

2013 Hall of Fame banquet. It was an honor to be<br />

among so many great coaches and advocates of high<br />

school<br />

athletics.<br />

I would like to also recognize the work of John Burke,<br />

Stringy Irvin and Bob Marken for their work in<br />

organizing the class and selecting the people to be<br />

honored that night. Your organization is enjoying great<br />

leadership and you all need to thank them for all they<br />

do. Becky Mudd does a great job with your<br />

publications, as well!<br />

************<br />

A quick note of congratulations to all the winter state<br />

championship coaches. It was a great winter for our<br />

students and you all play such a crucial role. We at the<br />

CHSAA Office appreciate what you do for kids!<br />

*********<br />

The <strong>Association</strong> staff would like to thank the<br />

presidents of the sports coaches association for<br />

attending the committee meetings this year. Their<br />

input is always insightful and valuable to the<br />

committee process. Thanks for taking the time to assist<br />

the CHSAA advisory committees. And, special thanks<br />

for including the CHSAA staff in the clinics this year.<br />

It is valuable exposure for these CHSAA staff<br />

members and a great way to learn more about the<br />

concerns of the coaches.<br />

***************<br />

********<br />

The April Legislative Council meeting is scheduled for<br />

April 18 at the Red Lion Hotel Denver Southeast<br />

(Parker and I-225) starting at 8:30 a.m. At that<br />

meeting, representatives from the all the leagues in the<br />

state meet to vote on changes in by-laws and the<br />

playoff formats for the coming seasons.<br />

Consideration will be given to a number of by-law<br />

proposals. As with every Legislative Council meeting,<br />

the agenda, by-law proposals and committee reports<br />

can be found on the CHSAA website<br />

(www.chsaa.org).<br />

The <strong>Association</strong> staff is utilizing the website more and<br />

more to get information out to our constituency in a<br />

faster and more effective way. All playoff brackets and<br />

sports bulletins are located on the website. Once you<br />

reach the web page, simply click on Sports on the left<br />

hand side of the menu and then select the sport you<br />

want.<br />

The committee reports to be heard include music,<br />

speech, basketball, ice hockey, skiing, spirit,<br />

swimming, track and field and wrestling. The<br />

Legislative Council will also vote on any amendments<br />

to any of the reports passed in January, as well as the<br />

committee reports to be voted on that day. There may<br />

also be amendments to other sport and administrative<br />

committee<br />

reports.<br />

It is important that you know what is happening in<br />

your sport and there is no better way than to be<br />

familiar with the committee report that has been<br />

forwarded to the Legislative Council. The<br />

www.chsaa.org website is the easiest and most<br />

effective way to keep up with what is happening in<br />

<strong>Colorado</strong> Coach page 16 SPRING EDITION 2013 colohsca.org


your sport. Take a moment and review your sport<br />

report with your AD.<br />

*********<br />

Spring is also the time that new committee members<br />

are appointed to fill vacancies on the sports<br />

committees. To be considered, a person must be<br />

nominated by his/her league, a CHSAA Board of<br />

Directors member, a Legislative Council member or<br />

CHSAA staff member.<br />

Those nominations are forwarded to the CHSAA staff<br />

liaison for each sport for consideration. The ideal<br />

make-up of the committees is to show balance among<br />

gender, geography and classification. CHSAA<br />

president Dr. Harry Bull must approve all<br />

appointments before they become official.<br />

********<br />

Track coaches: remember to regularly check the<br />

MaxPreps website and qualifying standards to make<br />

sure yours are listed properly in relation to the results<br />

of the meets. If you have any questions, please contact<br />

The CHSAA Sportsmanship Committee is promoting<br />

a program to identify what the committee feels<br />

happens more often than most people think and that is<br />

our teams, student-athletes, coaches, student bodies,<br />

parents, and fans participate in positive acts of<br />

sportsmanship. Therefore the Committee stole from<br />

the concept of random acts of kindness to propose a<br />

project for the CHSAA called Random Acts of<br />

Sportsmanship.<br />

At this past summer’s meetings of the National<br />

Federation of <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Association</strong>s (NFHS), the<br />

inaugural presentation of the Spirit of Sport of Award<br />

was given to Evergreen <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> for encouraging<br />

and selecting an autistic student to participate as a<br />

cheer athlete. It was unprecedented in that this cheer<br />

athlete was a full member at all cheer activities,<br />

including competitions. The Evergreen cheer squad<br />

did care about their scores in competition but only that<br />

they compete as a team. This was a random act of<br />

sportsmanship. Team was placed above winning.<br />

Within our 341 schools, the committee knows that this<br />

type of positive sporting behavior happens all the time<br />

in the CHSAA. The Committee is asking that you<br />

announce this project to your student body to be on the<br />

look out for random acts of sportsmanship. The<br />

Committee/CHSAA will select from the pool of<br />

submissions and pick the top five, which will be<br />

presented at the fall Sportsmanship Symposium. Those<br />

individuals who participated in these random acts of<br />

sportsmanship will be recognized at the Symposium as<br />

well.<br />

Here are the details:<br />

What an<br />

amazing,<br />

busy and<br />

productive<br />

spring this<br />

has been!<br />

AMAZING!<br />

Because a<br />

record setting number of coaches<br />

showed up for the<br />

USPTA/USTA/CHSCA tennis<br />

workshop in Boulder at The Meadows,<br />

February 2 nd . We enjoyed a variety of<br />

drills, new ideas on running successful<br />

seasons with our athletes and parents,<br />

enjoyed an amazing catered lunch,<br />

listened to Bethany Brookens from<br />

the CHSAA inform us of new rules<br />

we need to be aware of for the<br />

upcoming season, enjoyed a fashion<br />

show of new girl’s tennis wear for<br />

spring, as well as an informative talk<br />

about concussions by Dr. Karen<br />

McAvoy. WHEW! (We are also<br />

looking at creating this clinic into<br />

recertification credits for high school<br />

coaches!)<br />

AMAZING! Because I enjoyed the<br />

opportunity to come speak with over<br />

40 of you at your league meetings; and<br />

because it was a blast seeing so many<br />

of you at the GameSetMatch coaches’<br />

night. Thanks to the GMS staff who<br />

restrung coaches’ tennis racquets at no<br />

charge and put on a great night of<br />

wine and cheese, shopping and<br />

catching up with everyone.<br />

A FEW NOTABLES-<br />

**NEW – If a position is unable to<br />

play for “3” consecutive matches, the<br />

coach may not substitute a player and<br />

must move the line-up up in order to<br />

ensure that the best players/teams are<br />

playing in that position based upon<br />

challenge matches. Refer to the ethics<br />

rule outlined in the bulletin.<br />

** NEW – All players must have<br />

competed in at least 6 events at that<br />

position before they can play at that<br />

position in Regionals. Extreme cases<br />

may appeal to Bethany at<br />

VOLLEYBALL<br />

Derek Herbert<br />

Fleming <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong><br />

I was very<br />

fortunate this year<br />

to be able to attend<br />

and watch the state<br />

basketball<br />

tournament. It is<br />

structured differently than volleyball<br />

and all five classifications are in<br />

different locations, but the effort put<br />

forth by the athletes and the highs and<br />

lows of the competition are still the<br />

same. Seeing the joy expressed by<br />

athletes of the teams that win a game<br />

at state is awesome. Watching those<br />

games got me excited for volleyball<br />

and to start trying to get better and<br />

preparing to help my team get better.<br />

There is a lot of anticipation building<br />

as I start to prepare for summer work<br />

and the start of the fall season.<br />

One of the ways I am hoping to<br />

improve is by coming to the CHSCA<br />

Multi-sport Clinic this summer. It is<br />

Thursday July 25 th and Friday July 26 th<br />

at the Red Lion Inn in Aurora. There<br />

will be many talented coaches sharing<br />

what makes their programs so great.<br />

It is also a wonderful chance to<br />

network with some of the amazing<br />

coaches that work in <strong>Colorado</strong> and<br />

the surrounding area. You never<br />

know what nuggets of insight you<br />

might leave with that could make you<br />

and your program better. At the clinic<br />

you will be provided with concussion<br />

and sport rules sessions that will get<br />

some of the CHSAA preseason<br />

requirements out of the way. It will<br />

be two days filled with good friends,<br />

helpful vendors to meet with and<br />

amazing speakers to energize you right<br />

before the season starts. I can’t wait<br />

and I hope to see you there.<br />

I have been looking forward to the<br />

future and next season, but for some<br />

of the best seniors in the state, this<br />

summer will provide the last chance<br />

for them to play high school<br />

volleyball. The All-state games will be<br />

June 6-8 this year at Adam’s State<br />

College in Alamosa. This is a chance<br />

to honor some of the terrific players<br />

that have graced our programs over<br />

the years. There will be a banquet in<br />

their honor on the 7 th . Tickets are<br />

available on the CHSCA website<br />

(www.colohsca.org). The last chance<br />

to see these amazing people that have<br />

meant so much to our programs play<br />

high school volleyball will be on the<br />

8 th . If you can, I encourage you to<br />

come watch the event. The teams are<br />

intermixed with athletes from all<br />

classifications and the games have<br />

been very even and exciting in the last<br />

few<br />

years.<br />

I would like to give a shout out to<br />

Sue Snyder from Simla for entering<br />

the CHSCA Hall of Fame this spring.<br />

Sue is very deserving and it is<br />

wonderful to have her get this<br />

recognition. There are not many<br />

volleyball coaches in the CHSCA Hall<br />

of Fame even though we have many<br />

exceptional coaches in <strong>Colorado</strong> that<br />

would be great candidates. It seems<br />

like we get focused on our own<br />

programs and the future and<br />

sometimes forget to honor the<br />

amazing people in our sport for what<br />

they have done in the past. It would<br />

be great to have some more volleyball<br />

coaches nominated and accepted into<br />

the Hall of Fame. There are also<br />

several different CHSCA awards from<br />

being included in the <strong>Colorado</strong> Hall of<br />

Fame to awards for reaching different<br />

win milestones. The association’s<br />

many awards are in the <strong>Colorado</strong><br />

Coach Magazine. Please take time to<br />

look through the awards and<br />

nominate some of the many deserving<br />

coaches you have been able to work<br />

with through the years. I would be<br />

happy to assist you in the process if<br />

you would like me to. Feel free to<br />

contact me at herbertsvb@gmail.com.<br />

We often talk about the impact a<br />

coach can have on their players, but<br />

many times we forget to mention the<br />

effect coaches can have on each other.<br />

I have been very blessed to have<br />

several great mentors that have helped<br />

me be the coach I am today, but I also<br />

want to thank all of you for your<br />

kindness, guidance, and help<br />

throughout my tenure as your<br />

president. This is my last article since<br />

my two-year term ends this summer.<br />

It has been a wonderful experience<br />

and I have learned a lot and made<br />

many new friends through this<br />

experience. A huge thank you needs<br />

to be given to Sally Moos who was the<br />

president before me and gave me<br />

many hours of advice. Also there are<br />

so many coaches that have<br />

volunteered to work the All-state<br />

games or speak at the multi-sport<br />

clinic. Thank you for your time and<br />

being so willing to help when I asked.<br />

Thank you to Sandy Moss from<br />

Fowler for being my Vice-President.<br />

Sandy has great leadership skills and<br />

will be a wonderful volleyball<br />

president as we move forward. Maya<br />

Angelou said, “When we give<br />

cheerfully and accept gratefully,<br />

everyone is blessed.” I know I have<br />

been blessed by all that you coaches<br />

have given me and I am truly grateful.<br />

Thank you.<br />

have several speakers from the high<br />

school and college ranks coming in to<br />

give presentations on various topics. I<br />

hope to see as many of you as possible<br />

at each of these events as they will<br />

both be entertaining and educational.<br />

athletic directors for forwarding the<br />

All-State games nomination forms<br />

from all classifications 1A-5A.<br />

<strong>Association</strong> is a proud sponsor of the<br />

Outstanding Wrestler and Coach of<br />

the Year for each classification: 2A,<br />

3A, 4A, 5A at the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong><br />

<strong>School</strong> State Wrestling Tournament<br />

held at the Pepsi Center February 21-<br />

23, 2013. This event is sponsored by<br />

the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> Activities<br />

<strong>Association</strong> (CHSAA).<br />

The recipients were announced<br />

immediately following 5A team trophy<br />

announcements. Congratulations to<br />

the recipients of these prestigious<br />

awards from CHSCA and the<br />

President of CWCA, Keith Wollert<br />

Overall Coach of the Year: Andy<br />

Pipher, Paonia (2A)<br />

We had another outstanding coach’s clinic at<br />

the Ameristar, held in Black Hawk Nov. 3-4,<br />

2012. I randomly asked 15 coaches how the<br />

clinic benefited them and their program. All<br />

coaches responded that the clinic was well<br />

organized; they loved the speakers, the food,<br />

the hospitality of the venue, and of course the<br />

venue itself.<br />

In the survey I asked Head Coach<br />

Gary Ramsetter and Rusty, his long time<br />

assistant, how they felt about the clinic. Gary<br />

is one our valued coaches in our state and I<br />

have a lot of respect for his opinion, and it was<br />

the first time that I can remember that<br />

Alamosa was represented at Ameristar as they<br />

remarked,” that this clinic was superb and the<br />

clinicians were worth coming to see.” Thank<br />

you, Gary, Rusty and all the other coaches who<br />

responded to the survey, for taking time to<br />

help me provide a better clinic. I need this<br />

helpful feedback.<br />

At our clinic we had a business<br />

meeting where we filled the President and Vice<br />

President Positions. By a unanimous vote, I,<br />

Keith Woller, will serve as President for<br />

another two year term. Thank you coaches for<br />

this honor and in believing that I will represent<br />

our sport and you.<br />

Our Vice President is Bill Barron--<br />

former coach of Woodland Park. Welcome<br />

aboard Bill, I’m looking forward to working<br />

with you. Other candidates for Vice President<br />

were Rod Padia, from Chaparral; and John<br />

Faczak, from Bennett.<br />

Our meeting continued with<br />

discussions of concerns the coaches may have<br />

to make our sport functional. Such items as:<br />

State Dual Tournament, All-State candidate’s<br />

procedure and how important it is to our<br />

outgoing senior athletes and to all programs,<br />

OPC, and the new point system for duals<br />

which was presented at the Wrestling<br />

Executive Board meeting held in February. A<br />

new point system for duals was approved by<br />

the board to go to the next step of finalizing<br />

the change.<br />

We also discussed that USA<br />

Wrestling wanted to merge with us at our next<br />

year’s <strong>Coaches</strong> Clinic. The expenses were a<br />

little pricy at Ameristar and we need financial<br />

help if we are planning to remain at Ameristar.<br />

Our contract ended this year at Ameristar and<br />

I told the coaches the Board may move in<br />

another direction if we didn’t figure something<br />

out. We need more coaches to participate. But<br />

with the conflicts on that date, it just wasn’t<br />

going to happen. We need a different date and<br />

it maybe a different venue. The Olympic<br />

Training Center may be our answer to a new<br />

venue. The idea of merging with USA<br />

Wrestling was welcomed by our coaches; it is<br />

something we have needed to do for long time.<br />

<strong>Colorado</strong> USA is under new management and<br />

the timing seems right to merge so that our<br />

voices can be heard. Wrestling is a family<br />

sport.<br />

At our November 4 2012 CHSCA<br />

Board meeting Mr. Burke, Executive Director<br />

of CHSCA, praised Rick Bettger and myself<br />

for the job we did in organizing and presenting<br />

a great clinic for our coaches. Mr. Burke said<br />

“The bigger member sports need to offset the<br />

smaller member sports on their expenses.”<br />

This organization is structured to support our<br />

Page 23 SPRING EDITION 2013 www.colohsca.org


member coaches. That’s all we ask is to be<br />

treated fairly.<br />

I’m proud of you coaches- since I<br />

have been your representative we have<br />

increased our CHSCA membership by 30%.<br />

<strong>Coaches</strong>, we have a great organization and I<br />

want to encourage you to remain as a CHSCA<br />

member. We have some issues but the more<br />

coaches that sign up as members the better we<br />

can be heard. You voted me in as your<br />

president to represent you and that is my goal.<br />

The CHSCA Board voted to move our clinic<br />

to the summer to the Muti-Sport Clinic held at<br />

the Red Lion Hotel on July 26-27, 2013. This<br />

move will be on a trial bases. If this move<br />

does not pan out this year, it will be<br />

reevaluated for a new location and date for<br />

next year.<br />

We will be have two clinics this year<br />

one will be at the Red Lion this summer and<br />

the other will be this fall closer to the start of<br />

our season September 28-29, 2013 at the<br />

Olympic Training Center.<br />

The first clinic will be on July 26-27,<br />

2013 which is a CHSCA sponsored clinic that<br />

will be held at the Red Lion Hotel located at<br />

the junction of 225 and Parker Rd. We will be<br />

starting Friday with registration at 7-9 am with<br />

the first session starting at 9 am. We will be<br />

starting Saturday morning with registration<br />

which will be at 8-8:20 am and clinic will be<br />

starting at 8:30 am. You are required to be a<br />

CHSCA member Coach to attend which will<br />

be $70 for membership card and an additional<br />

$30 for the clinic. I’m sorry I will not have our<br />

schedule times completed when I turn this<br />

letter into Becky the editor of The Coach. We<br />

will be featuring a <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> Coach speaker<br />

Ray Barron life time coach of Heritage, Our<br />

rule change representative from CWOA,<br />

CHSAA Representative, and Mike Arthur will<br />

be bringing his expertise as our Keynote<br />

speaker. Mike will have several sessions that he<br />

will cover all of your positions.<br />

Thanks for your support<br />

See you all at the Clinics<br />

GIRLS’ BASKETBALL<br />

President Jeff Beatty<br />

Mesa Ridge <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong><br />

Well, another<br />

season has come<br />

and gone.<br />

Congrats go out<br />

to all the state<br />

champion<br />

coaches as well<br />

as those whose teams achieved more<br />

than they have in the past. I find it<br />

interesting that while some of the best<br />

coaching jobs are actually from teams<br />

that may not finish 1 st in their league,<br />

but perhaps 3 rd place with 6 th ranked<br />

talent, these coaches are not ever<br />

selected as coach of the year. It always<br />

seems to go to the league champion<br />

coaches.<br />

Currently there is a bunch of<br />

hoopla in the news about the Rutgers<br />

men’s coach having kept his job for a<br />

time, even though his egregious<br />

behavior had been brought to the<br />

athletic director’s attention. It is<br />

painfully obvious that all that the<br />

NCAA is concerned about in their<br />

coaches is their number of wins. Boy I<br />

sure hope we never get to that point at<br />

the high school level. Seems they<br />

forgot that teaching young adults was<br />

their primary mission somewhere<br />

along the way.<br />

I challenge you all next year to seek<br />

out that coach that you always have to<br />

game plan so hard against even<br />

though they may have lesser talent,<br />

and reward them for their great<br />

coaching and have them recognized.<br />

On another note I participated in<br />

the CCGS All Star game at Arvada<br />

West <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong>. What a treat! The<br />

event was well run in spite of the<br />

heavy snow. There were many college<br />

coaches in the stands, and I know<br />

several of the players were given<br />

offers. If your league isn’t getting the<br />

info in to have those seniors in your<br />

league recognized, get them on it next<br />

year!<br />

I know it is months away, but put<br />

the summer clinic on your schedule!<br />

The dates are July 25-27. I have<br />

several college coaches lined up as<br />

speakers for girls basketball, and<br />

couldn’t get confirmation for one of<br />

them by press time, so it is TBA for<br />

now. I promise that space will be filled<br />

by clinic time!<br />

Good luck in all your endeavors,<br />

<strong>Coaches</strong> Responsibility<br />

By Ray Barron<br />

Something I was never taught in all of my coaching classes was my<br />

responsibility to PROMOTE my program, athletes and staff. I look at all<br />

of our coaches today who never took a college class in coaching, and even<br />

those who did, who do not understand the importance of promoting our<br />

sports. We have all kinds of opportunities to do this but often just don’t<br />

take the time.<br />

For example, our organization has a $1,000 scholarship program for our<br />

student-athletes that often is looked over because we are too busy to fill out<br />

the form and gain recognition for those young athletes in a very positive<br />

manner. Right next to you in your department and on your staff you have<br />

great teacher/coaches who go unnoticed for all that they do for our student<br />

athletes. We offer the Dale Yost CHSCA Teacher Coach of the year<br />

award for these individuals. I bet you can think of someone who fits this<br />

description in your building, or a coach that you compete against. You all<br />

know an assistant coach who is loyal, works well with the staff and<br />

students, and in general makes your program better because they are part of<br />

your staff. These people need to be recognized because as an Assistant<br />

Coach they miss out on some of the limelight that allows the program and<br />

the head coach to be so successful. We have a new award that awards<br />

coaches who are the prime example of what sportsmanship is all about that<br />

you all need to think about. That coach who does things the right way all<br />

the time putting the sport and the kids first and setting a great example by<br />

doing what is right! The Katte Sportsmanship Award.<br />

Last but not least we have coaches who deserve to be in our coach’s Hall<br />

of Fame. We have a great hall of fame already, but there are coaches out<br />

there who everyone just expects that they must already be in, or that<br />

someone else will nominate, who need to be nominated so that they can be<br />

given this great honor.<br />

I know as a coach that we are not in it for the rewards, but on the other<br />

hand we need to promote our sports and the good things about it. So quit<br />

saying “I am too busy to get this done” and go to the CHSCA web-site and<br />

look at the awards this organization awards and nominate coaches and<br />

athletes that are deserving of these great awards and promote the positives<br />

of our profession.<br />

<strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong> after being sponsored for many years by The Rocky<br />

Mountain News and <strong>Colorado</strong> Sidelines. Any member of the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong><br />

<strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong> can nominate an athlete from any school.<br />

There are four requirements for a student/athlete to gain a nomination. The student/<br />

not eligible to be on the selection committee.<br />

The Steinmark Award honors Fred Steinmark, who excelled in football, basketball and<br />

baseball while attending Wheat Ridge <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> in the late 1960s. Steinmark also was<br />

an outstanding student and was active in several school and community-oriented<br />

endeavors before attending the University of Texas, where he helped the Longhorns to<br />

the national football title in 1969. Steinmark died from cancer in 1971 at age 22.<br />

Eight finalists and the final winner of the award will be selected by a committee of athletic<br />

directors, coaches, and former Steinmark Award winners. The winners will be honored at<br />

the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong> All-State Games Banquet to be held on<br />

June 10, 2012 on the campus of Adams State College in Alamosa, <strong>Colorado</strong>.

NOMINATIONS FOR<br />

CHSCA DOCTOR DALE YOST TEACHER/COACH OF THE YEAR<br />

To nominate a coach for the Doctor Dale Yost Teacher/Coach of the Year, fill out these two pages and give them<br />

to your A.D. You must be a member of the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong> to nominate a<br />

teacher/coach.<br />

Dear Athletic Director:<br />

For several years we have taken pleasure in awarding the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> Teacher/Coach-of-the-Year Award<br />

presented by the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong>. The award is co-sponsored by <strong>Colorado</strong> State University,<br />

<strong>School</strong> of Education, Fort Collins, <strong>Colorado</strong>.<br />

Our previous award winners have included many outstanding educators. The 2013 winner is Coach Ray Van Heukelem<br />

from Denver Christian <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong>. Nominated by colleague Dick Katte, Ray has been coaching and teaching physical<br />

education for over 35 years. His classes are never about “rolling out the balls”—he teaches every day, and has brought<br />

a lot of new activities to his classes, including new fitness classes and even roller blading. All of our winners have been<br />

very worthy recipients and truly exemplify the excellence that many individuals bring to both the classroom and the<br />

athletic arena.<br />

The award is decided on the following criteria: experience as a teacher and as a coach, holding the position of Department<br />

Chair, honors received in both teaching and coaching, and membership in the <strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong>.<br />

We ask that you and/or your principal nominate a teacher/coach in your school for this award. Each year we review the<br />

nomination forms that have been received. If you have nominated an individual within the last three years, the form is on file<br />

with us. If it has been over three years, we ask that you submit a new form to us. We will recognize the award recipient at the<br />

CHSCA Hall-of-Fame Banquet to be held in 2014. The award winners will be notified of their selections prior to this time.<br />

Nominations can be sent anytime but all nominations for the 2014 presentation must be received by December 31, 2013.<br />

Please send the information sheet along with your letter of nomination to:<br />

FORM‐ Sportsmanship<br />

<strong>Colorado</strong> <strong>High</strong> <strong>School</strong> <strong>Coaches</strong> <strong>Association</strong><br />

Dick Katte Sportsmanship Award<br />

Sportsmanship is how you play the game—conduct that leaves a much longer-lasting<br />

impression than who won the game. It has been one of the criteria by which teams, players<br />

and fans have been judged for many years. The coach is influential in sportsmanship by his<br />

or her actions and demeanor. CHSCA wants to recognize coaches who promote good<br />

sportsmanship and, by their actions, are positive role models. Nominated coaches must<br />

display an impression of dignity in all circumstances, and their teams and participants must<br />

be characterized by fair play, teamwork and courtesy. In addition the coach must be willing to<br />

censure those players and assistants who violate this conduct.<br />
