Row Row Row Your Boat

Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Asked to be a last-minute replacement speaker for a 5th grade farewell ceremony, Coach used his character training sessions as a football coach to “come up with something on short notice.” He has been invited back every year to deliver the same speech, including a virtual speech in 2020. Coach has also done this talk for high school and college football teams, adult organizations, and businesses.

  • The speech is a metaphor using the nursery rhyme Row, Row, Row Your Boat as life’s instructional manual with ‘your boat’ being ‘your life.’
  • A simple message for the young students that has enough ‘meat’ to it that the teachers (who hear it every year) and the parents also enjoy it.

5% or 100%
A talk meant for Adult Coaches working in Youth Sports Organizations.

  • Although only 1.5% of youth athletes go on to play in college, 100% of them become citizens.
  • What is our focus as coaches?
  • Coach has spent his life coaching the 100%, not to the 1.5%.
