Have you, or someone you know, been asked to become a youth sport coach? While this opportunity can be very exciting and rewarding, it can also be terrifying if you have never coached before (as is usually the case when it comes to the majority of volunteer youth sport coaches). Even if you know the “x’s and o’s” of the sport, there is still much more to learn when it comes to providing a safe, fun, and meaningful experience for the kids you will coach.

On this program Dr. Stankovich discusses many critically important concepts relating to youth sports coaching, including why kids play sports, examining the reasons why you coach, developing your personal coaching philosophy, creating effective pre-season meetings, watching for contemporary sport issues like burnout, supplements, and travel leagues, dealing with playing time and conflicts with parents, plus much more!
