DIVING INTO THE DEEP END
As Max walked out of another frustrating meeting with the leadership of the local sport complex, he knew that he would need to make an important decision. He loved to coach swimming, but felt stymied by the leadership. Swimming was not the focus of the complex; it was merely tolerated. Max, at the same time, in comparison, had a bold vision for the team and his swimmers. He understood that with more attention and slightly better resources some of his swimmers could have a bright future in the sport. He also wanted to popularize the sport and create a swim community. After the leadership did not support his ideas, he knew that it was time for a substantial change in his life. Should he turn his back to the sport he loved or start his own team?
