18: There's a person I look up to as an ideal coach Who's powerful methods are beyond reproach She brings out the best in everyone she meets And helps them to learn from their mistakes and defeats Every day I work beside her I feel like I grow In my understanding of kids from the knowledge she bestows Her incredible drive to be the best she can be Is an amazing trait and an inspiration to me When you ask for a spot here's what she will do She'll widen her stance like she's doing kung fu She'll pull up the legs of the pants she is wearing And offer some words that remove all despairing Gaining confidence from the powerful stance You begin to believe that you have a good chance Of learning a new skill by the end of the day Because your coach comes with an impressive dossier
19: You run and you hurdle and you are doing just fine The roundoff snaps down and it's your time to shine You complete your back handspring but you set too far back and your tuck is just inches above the floor mat You feel a strong hand raise you up in the air and you complete the back tuck with time to spare You may stand there stunned, and feel a bit sore But you hear "Saved your life. Now go do one more." Her attitude is one of never say never Tell her you can't and she'll make an endeavor To make you believe that you surely can do Anything you want and put your mind to It is impossible to explain the impact she's made And in so few words, the role that she's played In shaping gymnastics for our associaition And the influence she's had on the next generation
