When it comes to coaching, techniques get shared the world over. When it comes to mental preparation and certain tricks of the trade, that’s when coaches start becoming a little more guarded about what they know and what they’re willing to tell others.
This four-part series will focus on some of those “trade secrets” in working on getting more out of yourself as a coach and more out of your athletes. Some are philosophical, some are carved out of years of practice.
Part 3 of this series centers around a debate with parents. Do parents belong in the practice room if they aren’t active coaches? NCAA champion and Hall of Fame high school coach Daryl Weber talks about his experiences in dealing with parents in the room and some positive roles they can play.
