All coaches – no matter how experienced they are, or how confident they appear – will sometimes experience fear.
I think that many coaches react in the wrong way when a young athlete in their charge is struggling.
There is one word more than all others that I think it is important for coaches of young athletes to understand and to have a strong sense about.
I love teaching kids to run fearlessly over objects without hesitation.
I’ve purchased a range of fancy coaching aids over the years – some quite expensive. Funnily enough, some of my favourites are the most basic and inexpensive of these – and probably those that you would least expect.
