Coaching 101

Like many coaches, Coach Fox understands the basic for-mula for coaching: Describe what it is that you want your athletes to do; demonstrate what it is that you want your athletes to do; direct your athletes toward successful completion of that task; and reinforce your athletes’ attempts at what you previously described, demonstrated, and directed. Almost all coaches understand these basic principles of coaching. Great coaches take these basic principles and turn them into success stories both on and off the field, court, or pitch.
