● Dr. Jerry Lynch, author "Win the Day": 

Win the Day, written by Dr. Jerry Lynch, is a book about the power of connection, caring, and core values in a successful team culture. It is a book that will help you to create, model, and sustain what championship teams, like the Seahawks and Warriors, do on a daily basis. To achieve success in sports, one must believe a team s culture has to be connective, caring, and authentic, one way or another. It must come from the heart and soul of the coach and the athletes. Jerry captures that important dynamic perfectly in Win the Day, his seminal project in a long, distinguished career in sports, and helps you to implement its guiding principles. Jerry has written 13 books and aided 115 championship teams in 30 years of culture work at the pro and college level. He has aided teams such as the Chicago Bulls, and coach Phil Jackson as well as the multiple champions Golden State Warriors, and coach Steve Kerr who provides an insightful foreword here. Win the Day is a book that every coach, athlete, CEO, and leader in any aspect of life should read to understand how to best build a Win the Day culture for a team or an organization's ultimate success.

CHSAA COACHING REQUIREMENTS

The Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) has developed a digital platform for you to upload and complete certain requirements that are required for you to coach in Colorado. If you have coached in Colorado in the last three years you probably already have an account on the CHSAA digital platform powered by BIG Teams (formerly known as Planet HS or Arbiter). Your previous login information should be the same and you can simply log in to your account as you have previously done to upload your completed requirements. If you are new to coaching in Colorado, your athletic director will send you a link to register on the CHSAA digital platform where you can upload/document your completed requirements. Listed below is information on the requirements that need to be completed prior to the start of your season.
