Here are 30 resources that are good for coaches to be aware of.
You pour into an athlete for years, and then in their last year, they want to quit…
If you coach long enough, this will happen to you. What do you do? I made a short video about it here. It was inspired by a conversation I had this morning with a collegiate college coach about a player on her team that is struggling to be "all in" for her senior year. Click here to check it out.
In a nutshell, I told her to give the athlete two options: No, or hell yes. Let me explain…
The first option is just to let it play out. Eventually, the athlete will quit, or there will be some dramatic exit from the team. That means all the effort, energy, resources, and love you gave that player goes down the tubes, and the story that athlete will replay in her mind the rest of her life is that her coach was an ass, so she quit.
The second option is to model adult behavior and give her a choice. As coaches, we are models of adulthood for our athletes, so how we handle situations are...
"If circumstances had the power to bless or harm, they would bless and harm all men (and women) alike, but the fact that the same circumstances will be alike good and bad to different souls proves that the good or bad is not in the circumstance, but only in the mind of him (or her) that encounters it.”
