What athletes want

This module introduces the premise that at the heart of great coaching is the athlete experience:

  • When athletes feel respected and supported, their experience is positive
  • We show the feedback we have gathered from thousands of athletes over several years from a wide range of athletes, including competitive, recreational, young, old, para, men and women
  • Coaches who develop these skills ensure athletes feel respected and supported which ultimately allows them to become better athletes at any level
Learning Objectives
  • Understand the four main skills that create a successful experience for athletes
  • Demonstrate an understanding of why coaches need to be a effective at these four skills
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how these skills can benefit the athlete, the program/team and the entire organization
