Teaching & Coaching

Teaching, Coaching and teaching are essentially the same; it is sharing and raising the standard of performance along with the level of expectation. It is also about finding the correct buttons to push, given varied styles of learning, innate ability and motivation. Not every athlete comes out for a sport to be an athlete. Often the younger athletes do not even know what that is. Our job as coaches is to teach good training habits along with sound fundamentals. Some will want to achieve at higher levels and others will not, the trick is to serve both without short changing either. Many young boys and girls just want the affiliation of being part of a team, we must not forget that. Some of my fondest coaching memories are of these athletes.
