Jobs in the Sports Industry

"Your life should be fun, and if it isn't fun, you should change it."

Bill Resler, girls' basketball coach at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, Washington, believes this, knows it, teaches it, lives it.

He's also the star of the 2006 award-winning documentary film, "Heart of the Game." Resler has an ultra-rewarding sports career and so can you!

"The prerequisite of a high school coach is being crazy," says Director Ward Serrill. In the case of Coach Resler, it works. Says Serrill, "His players had raw passion and run-like-hell energy. They had more pure passion and enthusiasm than any other team in any other sport I'd ever seen." Resler (Bill to his players) brought them together on the court for an Inner Circle - a huddle that got them close, made them a team unit and fired them up with motivation.coaching jobs But what is the true secret of the inner circle? Keeping the families out of the game, says Bill. He drilled physical contact into timid city teenagers, taught them to be aggressive and turned them into wolves, the only creatures that would hold their ground and "Look into their eyes." But through all the work and sweat and tears and personal trauma, he "lets them blossom" and play to the end. "A hot game," says the coach, "is about having the most fun you can have in a game."
