Qualifications to Work with Young Athletes

Young Athletes and the qualifications needed to train them

I started my career by training nothing but Olympic Champions, National Team Competitors and Professionals Athletes.

 

But what I came to realize is that none of those experiences made me qualified to train young athletes.  Neither would I be qualified if I had an Olympic Medal around my neck or a Super Bowl ring on my index finger.

 

We constantly mistake ‘big names’ or ‘big credentials’ as qualified.

 

Let me put it this way… The most impressive and decorated mathematician at NASA is a literal genius with the topic of math, but would you really think them qualified and ideal to teach your 7 year old son how to multiply?

 

Success in sport or at the highest level of Coaching doesn’t mean that one is suited to understand and be fluent in the unique sciences of youth sports training.  Seek experience and education pertaining to the specialty at hand – not glitz and glamour.

 

Please, comment below… We truly want to hear your thoughts on this!

Tomorrow I’ll be in Louisville and kicking off the first IYCA International Summit.

And I admit that this is going to be an emotional time for me.

 

I founded the IYCA back in 2003.

 

Released it to market in late 2005.

 

The struggles have been many and the uphill climb steep.

 

But I wouldn’t have changed even one experience.

I am happy I purchased the program because now I have the knowledge

have had with Complete Athlete Development.
