The Essential Communication Plan

Coaches can change lives for the better with this communication plan:
 
 1. Being honest but saying things with compassion, realizing sports success is difficult to come by and with empathy so that players do not feel their character and self-esteem attacked.
 
2. Knowing where to say things – not in front of others when you must discuss effort levels with an individual.
 
3. Knowing when to talk to their kids about their sports play – not when kids feel bad enough already.
 
 4. Understanding that teaching with negativity does not work.
 
 5. Never forget the F-word – fun should be a constant in youth sports and adults should never take sport so serious that kids feel as though it is more about your life than their own.
