The Stasko Agency has had the pleasure of working with some real “go getters” for clients, and Rod Olson is certainly no exception. Rod, better known as Coach O, is the founder of Coaches of Excellence, a nonprofit organization that seeks to equip sport Coaches of all levels with the tools they need to capture the heart of the 21st century athlete and parent.

Whether you’re a parent of a young athlete or participated in sports yourself, how many times can you recall coaches and parents getting out of hand during games? Coaches have a strong impact on the lives of athletes, so wouldn’t you want your kids to be in the right hands? Coaches of Excellence offers workshops for coaches and parents alike, teaching them ways to a positive influence and build character and self-esteem in athletes.

We’re looking forward to joining the team and getting the word out there about these programs! Make sure to check out their website at
