    I stickied this for you. If you wanted to, you should be able to do so as the moderator though. If you cannot, please let me know, and I will hunt around in the permissions.

    Okay, you should be able to see it now. Look at the right side at the top of the OP. There is a drop down called Thread Tools. You'll see a Sticky box and some other things to use. You also now have links at the bottom of each post you can use.

    You should also be able to stick a post when you're writing it...there's a check box down the bottom. (I'm a mod on another site that uses the same software)

    Coaching-Books to add on the list are the ones by Phil Jackson...(probably no need to tell who this guy is)
    1. Sacred Hoops
    2. More than a game
    3... others, and books he recommends in his ones...
    Very inspiring... not only for running or basketball.

    Good stuff here! Do you have anything to recommend that deals specifically with coaching young kids (8-12 year olds)?
