Letter: 4H Club Silver Slingers coaches a great influence

To the editor:

When your child is born you pray the people who influence him will always be positive.

I have known coaches who only belittle children, bring them down and only encourage if they are winning.

But the coaches I really want you to know are nothing like that. They are the leaders for the Moffat County 4H Club Silver Slingers, Shawn and Sarah Polly.

These two coaches have been exactly the type of people I prayed would be influences on my son's life. They encourage, they counsel, they listen, they teach and they love. They love archery, they love life and they love to teach.

If you have never had the opportunity to meet the Polly's you should make it a point.

Shawn and Sarah we want you to know how very much you mean to the people you have touched. We want to thank you for all you have done for our child and so many others.

We appreciate your selflessness and guidance for both the kids and the parents. Congrats on a job well done getting the kids to the Colorado State Archery Shoot this year and giving them what they needed to bring home the ribbons.

Moffat County Archery is on the map because of you.

Thank you Again.

Well said, Cathy, and so true. Shawn and Sarah teach and guide with patience and thought, and they have a great group of kids to work with, and I don't say this just because my grandson is one of their team members. The kids in 4-H archery are an exemplary group of young people, and watching their dedication to their sport and to each other gives one hope for the future and the kind of adults they will turn out to be. They all seem to be getting a good foundation at home, and Shawn and Sarah enhance this through their guidance. This is shown thru the senior team placing third at state, the junior team winning state, and this club has eight young people who qualified for Nationals. The support they give each other and the support they get from their families and coaches helped them acheive this, along with their own skill and dedication. Way to go, Sliver Slingers! Job well done!
