A Thank you Letter
When I first considered writing a book I knew I had some information I wanted to share. I thought about many of the lessons I’ve learned from being around athletics for a few decades. I also had a few doubts if I could write about those experiences in a way others would find enough interest to read. As I tested what I was writing by sharing it with others in the process and getting their feedback, it became clear I was headed in the right direction.
So far in just a few days since the release of The Table, I’ve been overwhelmed with the interest and positive feedback of the book. Something I wasn’t prepared for is people asking for signed copies so I’m in the process of finding a solution to get signed copies to all those who’ve asked me for one.
My goal is for every coach, parent, teacher, or leader to know there is a resource available to help them and develop others. Also I want every student athlete at the high school, college, or professional level to have access to a resource that can have an immediate impact on their lives and careers.
I want to thank all of you who have reached out to me and/or purchased the book or E-book. Your support and encouragement has meant the world to me. To all my former coaches, teachers, and leaders who have impacted me – please take this as a message of appreciation for your role in my life.
I am forever indebted to all the former student athletes who helped me to be the best coach, teacher, and leader I could be. Thank you to all my family and friends for your love and encouragement. In turn, I want to encourage you to find something you want to contribute, go for it, and don’t stop until you finish!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Dr. Coach Pat Ivey
