The top priority for a youth sports coach is to provide children with a sports experience that’s fun and that lays the groundwork for them to become healthy, happy adults. As a volunteer or professional coach, you are always on the run from one practice or game to the next, but these resources can help you up your game on your time and from your own home or office.
Parents, staff and volunteers: we know you want to give the best for your youth. As a coach, you are the delivery mechanism for quality sport programming. Trained coaches do it best.
Project Play: Southeast Michigan is working with our partners at the Michigan State University Institute for the Study of Youth Sports (ISYS) to develop Coaches Training Clinics—focusing on the positive youth development characteristics of coaching. Topics covered will include strategies for motivating kids, emphasizing prevention and safety, working with parents, and building confidence and self-esteem.
