“One” Project – Coach 5-0!
The Oelwein Police Department, the Oelwein Community School District and the Oelwein Husky Football program are teaming up for a mentorship program involving student athletes and Oelwein Police Officers. The program, Coach 5-0, is intended and designed to provide an opportunity for officers to interact with youth in a positive way and to build relationships to where the youth and officers understand each other better and to allow the officers to guide the youth towards good life choices as well as learning life skills that student athletes can carry forward beyond this program.
“This program is another facet of our department’s “One” project in which we believe that one gesture, one action, one effort, one person, one team and one community can make a difference” advised Chief Jeremy Logan. “When we approached the school officials, last spring, with this concept, they were immediately on board and the program was quickly developed.”
Captain Ronald Voshell received his Iowa Coaching Authorization and quickly volunteered for this assignment. He has since volunteered numerous hours to get the program running and is now a part of the Oelwein Husky Football coaching staff.
“To be successful in athletics and in life, a lot of hard work goes into it and good choices have to be made,” states Chief Logan. “Having our officers working alongside our student athletes will hopefully motivate them toward success on the field and success in life”.
Further anticipated benefits of the program are:
Bridging the gap between police and Oelwein student athletes through adult mentoring.
Educating students on the role of law enforcement officers and the importance of building positive relationships between the athletes, community and the police department.
Fostering a working relationship between coaches and the Oelwein Police Department to provide resources for possible at-risk student athletes or those who have a need for basic life essentials.
Facilitating access to local social services when the need arises.
Look for Coach 5-0 on the sidelines of Husky Football all season long!
