On behalf of the Georgia Force Organization, we want to thank Chris Minard for his years of service coaching in our Organization. Last week, Coach Chris met with us to let us know he would be retiring at the end of the season so that he could have more time to focus on other things, including balancing out this other children and their sports. Chris has no doubt been committed to not only the Georgia Force for the last 4 ½ years ,but to his players. In discussing this, Coach Chris agreed it would be a good idea to allow some time now for the team to adapt to the change and so he finished out his last tournament and made the announcement to his team. Lamar Hughes will assume the role as head coach for the '03 team. Following the regiment of most coaches, Chris is that type of coach who is the first to arrive and the last to leave. The time he personally dedicates to his team is unquestionable and appreciated. In addition to the time with his team, he has always taken a huge role in the Georgia Force’s voluntary assistance with one of the largest travel showcases in the southeast; The Legacy Showcase. Georgia Force plays a huge role in this partnership with Legacy, and Coach Chris was one the most dedicated members of the organization with his time working at this event.
Chris started a Force team at the 10U level and continued through the current team, which is a 2nd year 12. His last tournament as head coach was last weekend and it resulted in a Championship playing up in the 14U age group. A coach usually gives one final speech and with Chris’, he expressed what each of the girls on the team meant to him, some of which have played with him since the age of 7. Right here, the Georgia Force Organization wants to acknowledge to Chris with the same appreciation for being a steward of the brand and we only hope we can get that same type of commitment from our coaches moving forward. We wish you the best Coach Minard!
