In ‘theL’, I will pay a special attention to coach education, developing ‘global’ athletes, deepening player learning and game sense, running more efficient practices, and motivation. And, all of it will be grounded in the art + science behind long-term athlete development.
That’s a big undertaking, I know.
These emails are about helping you – and me! – become better, more creative coaches, give perspective on what other world-class coaches are doing, and prod you to give critical thought to ideas you may not question.
One more thing… a lot of the content will be exclusive to the newsletter, so you have to be subscribed to get it.
