Youth sports training organization the International Youth Conditioning Association is offering a free coaching video from renowned coach Dave Jack.
In the video, Dave Jack outlines the significance of creating a coaching culture when working in the field of athlete development. He notes that children respond to strong leadership, which ultimately will help them become better athletes.
“You cannot be a good coach unless you can command a certain presence for yourself,” said IYCA CEO Pat Rigsby. “Dave Jack is an example of a coach who commands respect without demanding it. Coaches do not have to be stern or overbearing to be successful.”
In fact, Rigsby and the IYCA believe in the idea that good coaches look for traits in their young athletes and respond to them. “Rather than having strict rules and coaching styles,” Rigsby notes, “a good coach will create a kids fitness program that addresses the specific needs and abilities of the athlete.”
“The first step in youth sports training is assessment,” Rigsby continues. “You have to decide how to train people based on relevant information. Try to understand what they bring to the table, what they need to work on, and so forth. Only then will you know what to do with them.”
The IYCA frequently offers youth sports coaching tips, like the Dave Jack coaching video, through its blog and information products.
