The Art of Coaching Young Athletes


Great coaching is an art form. It involves so much more than mere knowledge of the sport and the ability to deliver the message. Is that message being received? Are the athletes excited and engaged when participating? Is the teaching/learning environment positive and does it promote a focus on self– and team improvement and excellence? Is there a recognition that the coaching of young athletes is and should be far different, with different emphases, than the coaching of most college and all professional athletes? Is the development of a strong, positive coach-athlete connection (the basis for more effective communication and motivation) being promoted? And is the opportunity to coach young athletes being viewed and used as a vehicle to teach life lessons and help develop success habits that will assist them in life? The Art of Coaching Young Athletes reveals to any prospective coach the keys to a high-quality way of coaching athletes of Kindergarten through High School age.
