What does it take to be the best coach?

What does it take to be the best coach?

I recently shared some great tips and advice from people with great commitment as children's sports coaches. Since then, my mail box hasn't stood still, and all the tips I've received have one thing in common.

What struck me when the tips fell in is that everyone hits me in some way, and when I think about it, I see the potential for improvement in myself on absolutely everyone. In short, it is not just that it is I don't think there's any way, but I need to be even more open to reflecting and discussing my thoughts and principles, because there are many of you out there who have a lot worth listening to. Below; some tips I got that have really got my head working.

"As a coach, you're not just going to build one team, but in reality three! One team with all the kids, one good team of coaches, and one whole community of guardians."

Lars Terje, children's football coach

"That he was in the audience, one works with. What are the signs for age, both physical and psychosocial, and how can I adapt the thread, so it suits them. And not to me!"


"Be sure to have a moment, with each and every one, during the training, where the child himself felt like it was seen!"
