Coaching is a process that has a deep foundation in pedagogy (Science of teaching), supported by science, forged in experience, proven and tested in the competitive arena. At its essence coaching is teaching and the coach’s classroom is the track, the pool or the gym. To be truly effective as a coach it is important to remember it is not something you do for a couple of hours a day, it is something you are. To be a great coach demands that you be all in with a total commitment to being the best you can be. After all how can we ask the athlete for commitment if we are not? Immerse yourself in the process and the outcomes will take care of themselves.
