In the context of coaching, “Earn Your Whistle” is a phrase used to emphasize the importance of hard work, dedication, and skill development for aspiring coaches or players. It implies that we must prove our ability and expertise before being given the authority or recognition symbolized by a whistle. Every day, you must #EarnYourWhistle.
