You guys are doing a great job of teaching these kids good gamesmanship and it’s clear you have a standard of conduct you expect all gamers to uphold.  While observing the experience I’ve seen mutual respect between players.  Thank you for creating an environment where players and coaches can enjoy competitive gaming while simultaneously encouraging one another.  We feel confident with our son in your care.
