Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982131747, Perfect Paperback)The playing field is the ideal place to teach life lessons. Youth and high school sports offer an endless procession of teachable moments, but these are too often sacrificed in the headlong pursuit of winning at all costs. The Power of Double-Goal Coaching helps coaches build winners on and, more importantly, off the field. Whether coaching pee-wees or varsity, Double-Goal Coaches prepare their teams to win on the scoreboard but know the second goal of sports using competition to teach life lessons is the source of lasting impact for coaches, parents, and athletes alike. In this book, Positive Coaching Alliance founder Jim Thompson shows you how to: Create a coaching legacy that will live on through the lives of your players; Improve your athletes' performance by focusing on effort rather than results; Elevate your athletes' emotional state so they can perform at their peak level and have more fun; Teach athletes to compete while honoring the game; Deal with common coaching challenges, such as managing parents, planning effective practices, allocating playing time, coaching your own child, handling a losing season, and deploying assistant coaches; Become part of a national movement to transform youth sports so sports can transform youth.
