The playing field is an ideal place to teach life lessons. Youth and high school sports offer an endless procession of teachable moments, but these are too often sacrificed in the headlong pursuit of winning at all cost.
The Power of Double-Goal Coaching helps coaches build winners on, and more importantly, off the field. Whether coaching pee-wees or varsity, Double-Goal Coaches prepare their teams to win on the scoreboard but know the second goal of sports - using competition to teach life lessons - is the source of lasting impact for coaches, parents and athletes alike.
