Coaching kids sports is the most rewarding experience when your athletes are positive and interacting enthusiastically with you and each other.
Having coaches and teachers to be able to communicate to the kids is essential not only to the team performance but to the kid as an individual. We know intuitively that having highly effective coaches/teachers can have an enriching effect on the daily lives of children and their lifelong educational and career aspirations. We now know empirically that these effective coaches/teachers also have a direct influence in enhancing student learning.
