Just a note of thanks.
A light bulb went off for Lily last night in our back yard when she
did a "Laurie Pirtle" move against her older brother and made a lay up
on him. She then proceeded to practice a left handed behind the back
move until she was comfortable with it. She finished off shooting 50
free throws and making 70% of them.
I can't tell you how much joy it brought me to see the confident smile
on her face I've been waiting to see for a long time. Whether she
plays basketball another day or not, the feeling I had as a father and
the confidence she experienced last night was immeasurable to her
maturing as an adult.
What you do for these kids is much more than teaching the game of
basketball to them. They are learning skills, whether they know it or
not, they'll take with them for the rest of their lives.
I just wanted to slow down for a second and say THANK YOU!
A greatful father,
Madelene LOVES the skills training, but
I let Coach Pirtle know that Madelene does have ONE complaint. Her
complaint is that Coach Pirtle makes her so tired that all she wants
to do is come home and relax. Isn't that just so awful?!?! :)
Madelene looks forward to attending every week. I think Coach Pirtle
does a fantastic job training them, but most importantly, she's
helping Madelene believe in herself and building up her self esteem.
That is awesome!
of the work and practice has really helped me to achieve one of my
goals. I made the Lakota Ridge basketball team. I have
noticed a huge change in the way I play basketball. I am very
fortunate to have a coach like you with so much experience to teach
me more and more and to help me to improve on my skills."
"On behalf of the girls basketball
program we are truly blessed to have someone like Coach Pirtle working
with our student-athletes. I can already see the improvement in all
of the players that she has worked with. As a Head Coach you are
always looking for ways to improve yourself and your team, and Laurie
has helped in that area. We want to continue with her as along as we

|I just wanted to say that after 2
workouts with Laurie Pirtle, my daughter is so thrilled. My daughter
comes home beaming with pride and motivated to work even harder in her
off season to continue to improve herself. I personally observed the
workout today and I am thoroughly impressed. I can say that Alexis has
never had this type of coaching before and we are honored to be able
to have this opportunity. Thank you so much Coach Pirtle!!

the ballhandling workout. I thought it was really good and would now like
to order the shooting one."

program and was wondering how I can sign him up for the program."
