While in Detroit this past weekend I took some down time to check out the Motown Museum- Hitsville, USA!!    As  I was learning more about Mr. Gordy, how he inspired artists and built the Motown empire I couldn't help but see the correlation in mentoring, teaching, coaching and building a team.  I think this quote speaks to the idea of helping provide the tools for children to maximize their potential and reach for greatness in any endeavor.



“Every day I watched how a bare metal frame rolling down the line would come out the other end a spanking brand new car. Maybe I could do the same thing with my music ... create a place where a kid could walk in one door an unknown and come out another door a star.” 
-Berry Gordy Jr.


So coaches, teachers and mentors...Maybe we can do the same with swimming...Let's start making more hits!
