Great coaches encourage their athletes to grow both on and off the field. They take an interest in their players’ academics and home lives as well as with their athletes’ performance and training. By taking the time to check in on each athlete, you as the coach will stay aware of what is happening with them in their lives. Taking this kind of nurturance and interest in your athletes’ lives will ignite the power of passion in them, fueling their motivation, enthusiasm, energy and love for the game.
