The Coaching Know-how to survive and get players to buy in

Without the coaching know-how to handle so many issues that pop up in today's youth sports environment, youth coaches have no chance of surviving, or at the least, having any fun themselves.

So often I hear this statement from coaches "Ah they don't want to play."
Of course, I don't want to show the coach up so I remain silent. But my first thoughts are, "Hey it's not the player's fault." What about you the coach that's why you're the coach - to create the enthusiasm and the fun so kids do want to be there.
In my book, I give coaches numerous ways to enthuse kids and make the games fun and maybe, just maybe, the kids will fall in love with the game. I give proven solutions for dealing with so many things things that no one prepared them for when they started coaching.

Just some of the coaching know-how to prepare for and things I help with in my new book.

  1. Safety - Keeping everyone injury free has to be at the top of every coach's to-do list, but it is not always that simple.
  2. Skill Development and game strategy are more than just telling kids how to do things. Words alone are never enough.
  3. Developing Focus is more than yelling concentrate all the time.

  4. Avoiding Boredom what do you do when kids ask "do we have to do this" or they do not want to practice
  5. Discipline and accountabilityare important things coaches must be ready for but most are not and often they do or say regrettable things from their unpreparedness.
