The story behind Winning Youth Coaching – “I am a passionate youth sports coach, a husband, a father of three, and a believer that coaches can change the self-esteem and future of the young people we coach. I started this site to share coaching successes and learnings with other parent coaches who share this passion of the impact, responsibility, and fun of positive coaching. I have coached dozens of youth sports teams over the past 10 years- including football, basketball, and lacrosse. I am also a student of coaching – attending seminars, online learning, and completion of an 18-week coaching class at the University of Akron taught by Jim Tressel and Jim Dennison, with guest speakers from many different sports at the college and professional level.”
