Teaching Themes and Life Lessons in Sport

Teaching Themes and Life Lessons in Sport
Hosted by

In this episode of The Coach Approach, OzSwoosh I consider the importance of using themes or periodization to teach life lessons to athletes when coaching.

Sport provides the perfect opportunity to impact on the lives of those we work with as coaches.

Being a good role model and imparting life lessons is a great way to lead your team, here I share some approaches you may consider to help you deliver those life lessons.

Sport offers many opportunities to teach so many soft/life skills like accountability, time management, resilience, socialization and teamwork etc.
