What makes a great coach, leader, teacher, boss, and mentor? Hats off to all who coach or lead. It is an incredible commitment preparing, planning, communicating and leading both parents and kids down the pathway of development.
There are tricks to the trade here and there are some great resources you can tap into to help you along the way.
Today, Jeff Krushell talks with Wayne Parro, Senior Coaching Consultant for the Coaching Association of Canada. Canada has one of, if not the very best, coaching development program in all of sport. We talk with Wayne about the tough situations a coach can find themselves in and discuss the important aspects of being and effective coach. Injury management & assessment, emergency action planning, ethical decision making, practice planning and most importantly making sport fun again.
Also, we go back to the Fun Maps to review what kids think are the most important traits of a good coach.
