Then again, I had a soccer coach like this.

Sorry, I realized this should have been in the NSR thread. Please move it there.

Well... it is about coaching.

Tough to read, but perhaps very worthwhile.

Interesting last line:

"They say a football team takes on the personality of its head coach. I think they are right. This team certainly reminds me of you."


I imagine coaches who could learn something from this won't see themselves in it - or open the link anyway.

A USA Water Polo board member introduced me to a program called, The Positive Coaching Alliance which supports, encourages and recognizes very positive coaching in sports.

It began with a Stanford University study funded by basketball's Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan. The result is a wonderful 10+ year old non-profit organization.

The programs are geared toward youth sports and coaches, however the goals and objectives are very applicable to all of our swimming levels - collegiate teams and even masters adult programs.

The website resources are worth taking a look over -

"Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is transforming youth sports so sports can transform youth."
