OUR focus is to help sports programs, athletic departments and professional sports shift there goals to meet two objectives athlete welfare and performance excellence. While meeting three principles, respect for the team, the coach and yourself. All three objectives need to be met in order to meet the 'Athlete First" Philosophy.
Understanding the power-dynamic between a coach and athlete is essential to create a balanced amtosphere for the athlete. Individual sports are still team sports when your actions have a negative impact on your teammates/competitors.
Respect for the coach, do you have a two way dialogue, are you listening to the expertise of the coach? Are you building the lines of trust between you and your coach to get better? Our coaches have a great impact in our lives, knowing when you are causing harm and enhancing the life of an athlete is essential to the development and the excellence of the athletes goals.
Respect for yourself. Is there more we need to say there? Respect yourself. Coaching by fear is not teaching an athlete how to respect themselves. Respect, Empower and Inspire.
What you don't know, you don't know. How can you make changes to athletic environment if you don't know that is anything wrong and you don't have the philosophy that your trying impart to your athletes.
