HEAR ONE COACH'S STORY

THE IMPACT OF A CARING COACH

If you think back to the great coaches in your life, a common theme arises- each individual had their own coaching style, but what we remember most is that they were THERE for us, they saw something in us that was WORTH developing, and they CARED about us. And we could FEEL that. You have the opportunity to be that great coach who players remember for all the right reasons. Here’s what you’re really signing up for when you take the Coaching Corps challenge and become a coach:

  • Provide kids with a safe environment where they can make friends and learn from role models who can relate to them.
  • Help prevent or reverse the damaging effects of toxic stress response by developing a supportive, responsive relationship with kids.
  • Join a national movement of people committed to advancing equity through the development of positive relationships with youth.
  • Help close the opportunity gap because every child deserves a caring mentor and coach.

YOU DON'T
HAVE TO BE
GOOD AT SPORTS TO BE GREAT AT COACHING!

WHAT REALLY MAKES A GREAT COACH

While competitive sport is fun and enriching to young people and the fundamentals of the game are important, what is needed most is someone who is dedicated, shares life experiences, and cares about their players. Here’s what it takes to be that GREAT coach:

  • A desire to foster kids’ growth and development through meaningful relationships.
  • A commitment to show up each and every week for your team.
  • A belief in the lessons sports teaches, both on and off the field.
  • No coaching experience needed! We provide all the training, support, and tools for you to be successful.
