2023 Brooks Inspiring Coach Award - Amy Posner Wolff

Coaches are the visionaries behind successful athletic programs and establish the culture, values and philosophies that inspire athletes to perform at their personal best. Mercer Island is proud to have the West Coast Winner of the Brooks “Inspiring Coaches Program”, Amy Posner Wolff, within its ranks. Out of a total pool of 486 candidates Brooks selected Amy as a finalist, representing the West Coast.

"Brooks established the Inspiring Coaches program in 2014 to shine a light on these incredible humans. If you’re lucky, you’ve had a coach that taught you more than running. Good coaches inspire, educate, discipline, and ultimately teach some of life’s greatest lessons. They help us to reach goals we might not have thought possible, buoy us up when we fall short, and give us the strength to get back up again. All this while serving as equal parts anchor and inspiration.1

The Brooks Inspiring Coaches program recognizes some of the high school coaches across the country who’ve made a big difference in the lives of their student athletes."
