The CHJS Everyday Legends podcast will celebrate the unsung heroes of the many inspiring, athletic stories - the coaches. We believe coaches can make a HUGE (we're looking for good here though we can talk the other way, too) difference on the lives of young people. And maybe even for some of you adults out there who still think about the lessons you learned from your high school softball or swimming coach.That's what we want to hear. The profound and often unnoticed GOOD stories and lessons learned from good coaches. The people who more than often volunteered their time and knew little to nothing on the sport but were willing to love and support you and your teammates.  Though mostly human interest and conversation-based, the Everyday Legends podcast will also chat about the need for a revamped youth sports system, trained coaches, and even brain science.We'd love to hear from you!
