As part of the league Henry is in they have the players read a pledge. It may sound corny and some of the kids don't take it serously (they LOSE it every time they vow not to do alcohol or drugs), but I LOVE it. I think it is a great reminder of what they are there -to have fun, work hard, to respect their team and coach. Each game a kid volunteers and Henry volunteered today. He rocked it. I was proud....so proud...I volunteered to do the parent pledge.
