Coaches: Level Up with Your Players – PCA

http://positivecoach.org/the-pca-blog/coaches-level-up-with-your-players/

Another good article from the good folks at the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA).  I think these recommendations are fantastic.  I have been sharing the ‘get down on their level physically’ in my clinics.  I’m not sure about the recommendation to hold their heads, though.  I would be careful about that one.  I’d also add that the coach should work hard to learn the players’ names as soon as possible.  It makes a difference when a coach refers to the child by name as opposed to ‘buddy’ or ‘little guy’.
