Developing a program of success
The first important decision that you will make after deciding to coach
youth sports is how to set up your program. Regardless of the sport,
the players’ age or gender, you must establish the foundational
aspects of your coaching style. You must create the principles and
your relationship with your players.
At CoachingYouths.com we strongly recommend that you develop a
program based on sound principles and a fundamental value system;
one that re-enforces the important aspects of your players’ lives. The
majority of the teams you will be coaching are sponsored by either
· Local city or town’s recreation department
· Local YMCA, Boy’s or Girl’s Club
· Religious organization, such as your church, or temple
· Local school
Through the CoachingYouths.com process you will employ the same
methods used by some of the most successful coaches in the
country. These methods are applicable to all levels of competition,
from youth athletics all the way to the NCAA.
