Championship Thinking in Sports – Courage Through Character

Join Jerry Kindall, as he shares his conviction for a philosophy of coaching based on character and ethics; a philosophy central to the integrity of the game and to the development of young players and men. Jerry’s, talk at the 2008 ABCA convention on this topic titled, “We DO make a Difference.” will provide guidelines and principles coaches can use day by day to guide their decision making and judgment. Coach Kindall, now retired, from the U. of Arizona won three national championships and was named Coach Of The Year those same years-’76,’80 and ’86. Jerry has authored several books, and spoken at countless baseball conventions and clinics world-wide. He is the only person to have played on (U. of Minnesota-’56) and coached a DI Baseball National Championship team. Jerry, a shortstop, played eight years of major league ball with the Cubs, Indians and Twins. As your host, I am extremely impressed by the respect Jerry has among his peers.
