Coaching in Youth Sports

A pervasive feature of organized youth sport programs is that they survive in large part because of the support, commitment and involvement of coaches. Research shows that coaches in youth sport who prioritize personal development are more likely to help their young athletes reap the long-term benefits of sport in terms of performance, enjoyment and continued participation.  It’s clear that youth sport coaches play one of the most central roles in the development of youth as athletes and people.
