"Coaching Kids: If Fun Is #1, What Are Numbers 2, 3, ...?"
This is not a typical 'coaching my way' book. In this book, Keith Michalke looks at the purposes of organized sport programs in terms of the wants, needs, and values of kids, parents, and administrators. Studies involving thousands of kids indicate their motivations for participating in organized sports as well as their expectations of coaches. Situations coaches deal with every day are used to illustrate how to put research and theory to practical use. The big question: "Where does 'winning' fit into a sport program?" is answered by kids and leading professionals in the field of sport psychology. This book shows coaches how to put it all together to write a coaching philosophy, a purpose statement for a program, and objectives that put them into action. Simply put: When you understand why kids are participating you will be more effective at how you teach what you teach.
