Being a youth sports coach is one of the most rewarding and challenging pursuits we can have in life. We want to help children enjoy and learn in an organized fashion. Watching them smile, move and execute what we teach gratifying and honorable. Often time parents will praise us for a job well done. But, while this does happen unfortunately far too often parents criticize either to our faces (rarely) or to others (often). We see the joy everyone has when our team wins. So we will try our best to make everyone happy with our efforts. Winning is the mark of a Coach that everyone wants to play for, right?
The truth is whether you are a Parent or a Sports coach we all have great intentions. We want the best for the children, and we put our best effort in what we do. While very few youth sports coaches get paid, primarily those "Specialization Pros" who may make a living off coaching kids, the vast majority volunteer their time. Most in fact 85% are parents of a child on the team. Many see these people as, "Angels of service". And of course the toughest most unappreciated job on the planet is that of a parent. No pay and lots of pain, but there are bless moments too. In fact all these adults will have blessed moments and will have touched the heart and minds of many they teach. But while we are trying to do our best, the effort alone doesn't assure that the best is what is being given to the children.
According a number of long term credible research studies (they will be featured in this course) well over 30% of children will not play the same sport again. About 70% will quit playing all organized sports after a few seasons which typically happens between age 11 & 13. The reason why they quit have everything to do in the way we run youth sports and they way we coach kids. Bottom line is that most kids don’t what to play for the coach they had and after they have experienced a few misguided coaches they assume all coaches (which is mostly true) will coach in the same way, so they quit.
From the child's perspective than parents and coaches have removed the reason they wanted to play sports to begin with which is that we have destroyed FUN. We have destroyed FAIRNESS! We have Destroyed FUNDAMENTALS! All these things are what kids want from coaches and we have collectively failed to provided to them what will keep them wanting to play. I highlighted from the child's perspective for a reason. Because it is here that research tells us we are failing children.
Sports Coaching has to change! Most kids don't want to play for the coaches they have, they are not the coach that everyone wants to play for! The current and accepted methods of coaching are destroying the foundation for future generations. Numbers don't lie. Sports Participation is trending down. For those that quit life becomes more difficult on average compared to those that continue. 98% of kids that drop out of high school don't play organized sports as teenagers. 95% of executives in fortune 500 companies played organized sports after puberty. Teens that continue to play, do better in school, do better in careers, do better in relationships, are healthier and happier. Yet, we are coaching in a way that is causing children to leave sports, creating a drop out environment rather that a success environment.

In order to know where we are at, a requirement to start any journey, we need to know where we've been and what we have available to us. This lecture digs into the moral compass of coaching.

This lecture comes with two workbooks to assist you in determining both of these most important requirements for becoming the coach that everyone wants to play for.
Circa 1970's via the USSR and the 1990's with a study to challenge eugenics and the 2000's with Malcolm Gladwell expansion on Anders Ericsson's study that supported specialization as a means to achieve elite performance. The timeline continues as we look and how these events along with Winning Focused programs create the culture of today.
One of many psychologist with scientific research backing up theories about how children develop and what we should be exposing our children to as they mature. Havighurst's model was more detailed than Gulick's and could be the first of the many that would follow that lead to the LTAD model.
In this lecture we distinguish the differences between biological and maturation ages in a different light that many established schools of practice. To discern one from the other we look at biological and the physical side of maturity and Maturation as the mental and emotional development of the mind. We can say biology is the brain and maturation is the mind.
Here we put all the pieces together in a grand formula designed to help us be closer to knowing the "true, natural age of a person" this is the best way to place individuals into groups where they are challenged appropriately and in a way that helps them develop emotionally strong and mentally tough.
This section begins with the youngest level of the cognitive function. We will not be coaching children this age but we can still learn why it is that some children act the way they do. Each level will bring lessons that are brought into greater levels and having an understanding of where our players have been can help us to guide them moving forward.
This level is where the vast majority of children will begin playing sports. We will look at what they are thinking and feeling and where they are focused in their mindset. Knowing this will help us connect better with them and in turn make us become the coach that everyone wants to play for.
Now we understanding the grouping we will need a means to keep kids properly challenged as each will undoubtedly progress at different rates. Star Flow speaks to the fluidity of SDS and how moving the players around is the design of the system. Cycles within each group and movement between groups by those needing more balanced challenges.
