On the Black Hoodie
by David Osorio
If you were at the Community Potluck a few weeks ago, you may have seen me present Coaches JB, KHarpz, and Janelle with the coveted CFSBK skull and crossbones hoodie. These black hoodies featuring our original logo have been in production since 2009 but cannot be bought, only earned. Over the past year or so, JB, KHarpz, and Janelle have been working on their coaching skill set, and we’re honored to present them with the highest honor in the CFSBK universe!
But the hoodie doesn’t just signify that you’ve put in the hard work to gain valuable coaching experience. Above all, the black hoodie is given to those who embody the character and spirit of CFSBK. Its recipients have put in the time necessary to develop the “hard skills” like coaching development, knowledge base, and the ability to communicate difficult concepts, but they also have the “soft skills” that make our coaching staff so excellent: enthusiasm, empathy, integrity, and commitment to teamwork.
This tradition started back in the Lyceum days, so I decided it would be most fitting to keep the vintage logo. It’s a way of linking new coaches back to our roots, to our ethos of hard work, determination, and community.
