Yet another intuitive intangible that I truly believe cannot be taught… But CAN be improved upon so long as you’re prepared to look in the mirror…
A quality Coach has a presence.
Not because they are dictators or aristocratic morons who feel compelled to proclaim their dominance, but because they simply have a commanding authority that is automatically respected and impossible to ignore when Coaching Young Athletes.
In my career, I have 3 Coaches who fit this bill perfectly –
Youth Fitness: Find out how to get ahead of the competition
Okay, the inventory is set and ready to move!
And here’s what I’ve got for you:
1) Closed-Door: How to Create Profitable & Effective Speed Camps
On the Sunday of the 2009 IYCA International Summit, I did a 4-hour closed-door presentation along with Pat Rigsby:
:: How to Teach Deceleration & Acceleration (6-Step Sequence)
:: How to Prepare Athletes for Speed Combine Camps
:: How to Create Programs that Are Effective in 1, 2 or 7 Day Speed Camps
:: How to Write & Send Press Releases So You Get in the Paper & on TV
:: How to Create Free Community Events that Lead to BIG BUCKS
This seminar was wildly successful and became an international smash hit. Not just because of what I taught about effective Speed & Agility Training, but because I revealed my own formula for creating weekend Speed Camps that routinely generated as much as $10,000!!
I have long contended that too much coaching when it comes to working
with very young athletes is far worse than not enough instruction.
Give them ideas of what it is you want.
Offer more instruction if they need it.
And then let them play.
Allow them to figure it out.
This process builds Athletic Intelligence and gives very young athletes the
ability to warehouse knowledge through a trial and error sort of way.
Do you agree?
Disagree and want to explain why?
Please watch this two minute video during which I explain how to correctly be Coaching Young Athletes the process of deceleration.
Give it a watch and leave your comments below. I really want to know your
thoughts on the matter.
