It’s hard to fathom just how important you are!
If you are great at what you do, you inspire kids to play, to love, to work to overachieve, to reach their dreams.
If you aren’t great, if you are a child’s last coach, you might cost our Olympic program a potential athlete, you devalue an athlete and perhaps even deter them from future athletic endeavors.
We don’t get a “bad day.” If we do, we may lose an athlete. We can destroy a team culture. We can veer an athlete off their journey.
“What is the difference between an artist and a coach? At the end of the day, an artist can throw their work away, but a coach cannot.” - USA Women’s National Wrestling Team Head Coach Terry Steiner.
How did you get better today as a coach? What did you read? What did you watch? Who did you talk to? What about this week? This month?
Can you be a valued consumer of coaching content that is science based and not ‘the shiny new thing?’
Even though our country does not consider coaching as important a profession as other countries which require years of schooling and practical learning, the ever changing landscape of youth sports has never required us to be at our best more.
If you or your club is interested in coaching clinics, (online or in person, practice evaluation (video), one on one mentoring, (in person or online) or parent education clinics (in person), please reach out to the Region. We want to help.
