Attending the Trail Blazers Youth Coaching Summit last Saturday went surprisingly well. I went in not sure what to expect & this clinic was the best coaches’ clinic I’ve ever attended.
As coaches we have a lot of influence on our players & we need to remember that each player is different and we need to be flexible in their learning abilities. Some of the players these days don’t necessarily respond to the “old school” way of coaching. I came from the “old school” way of coaching. This clinic gave me a new way of thinking to integrate my “old school” style & what might work betterfor my team/players.
Some of the examples are:
I now have a renewed sense of why I’m coaching & supporting “my girls/team”. I truly love all of them. I’ve had the honor of coaching them since 5th grade and this year will be bittersweet since it’s their last year in the youth program.
