So...You Think You Want to Be a Coach? - 100 Lessons in Practical Coaching

A coach is an ambassador for Jesus Christ.

Gerald T. Davis’s new book, So...You Think You Want to Be a Coach? - 100 Lessons in Practical Coaching, ($16.49, paperback, 9781498440271; $8.99, e-book, 9781498440288) helps coaches to understand that coaching is more than teaching plays on the field – it's about making a difference in lives through positive core values. Christian author Gerald T. Davis knows a thing or two about coaching, having had over two decades of coaching high school, college and AAU basketball. He understands that to be a truly successful sports coach takes time, patience, and appreciation for the game and all those involved with it. This book shows coaches how to handle defeat and includes great examples of noteworthy professional coaches and how they have succeeded or even failed. It covers several aspects of coaching all levels of sports teams, such as displaying good sportsmanship while on the sports field to academic achievement. It’s a must-have guide for the novice and the professional.

“I want readers to know that coaching takes a sincere commitment and good attitude,” states the author. “A coach is an ambassador for Jesus Christ. My book can be used in every aspect of a reader’s life – these life principles are NOT just dedicated to sports.”

Gerald T. Davis has over 20 years of coaching experience – coaching both men’s and women’s basketball in high school and college. Gerald holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the College of New Rochelle and a master’s degree from St. John’s University in education. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior at a young age. He has always enjoyed making a difference in the lives of young people and adults alike. As a passionate lover of sports and God, Gerald wanted to join both of his passions in this book – a rarely combined topic found in the reader’s marketplace. He is also the proud author of his first book, Coaching with the Scriptures.
