Secrets Series Part 1: Letting the Athlete Decide the Right Choice for Themselves

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 1 of this series centers around getting an athlete to make up their own mind rather than a coach forcing them into doing it. Coach Daryl Weber shares a key anecdote from his senior year with coach Dan Gable.
