Happy Holidays from CoachDeck!
 
With another year behind us, we would like to take a moment to wish our many loyal customers (and customers-to-be) a Happy Holiday Season and Prosperous New Year.

In the new decade ahead, we plan to be at the forefront of innovation in youth sports. From our soon-to-be released football and softball decks, as well as our i-phone app, to new and exciting partnerships, product lines and services we're developing behind the scenes, CoachDeck is committed to being the ultimate resource for sports coaching.

In this issue of On Deck we bring you more great information and special offers, and would like to ask you to let us know how we're doing by taking a brief survey. And with spring just around the corner we want to remind you that there is no better way to provide valuable training and say "thank-you" to your volunteer coaches, than giving them with a CoachDeck.
 
Again, from everyone at CoachDeck, best wishes for a memorable, safe and fun holiday season. See you in 2010!
