by Jim O'Connor

If experience is the best teacher, then anyone involved in the profession of coaching youths will benefit from reading Coaching the Coaches. In this comprehensive handbook, Jim O’Connor shares what he has learned over thirty years of working with young athletes. This book contains a whole host of valuable information, including dealing with parents, establishing a rapport with the press, and choosing the staff. More importantly, it is clear that the love O’Connor has of teaching youth athletics goes well beyond what happens on the sidelines. His attitude is ever-positive, and the results he has achieved are no doubt a result of his “coaching-up” philosophy. O’Connor believes positive reinforcement is the most effective way of getting through to kids.

Coaching the Coaches means getting into the head and heart of young athletes, teaching them values that leave them well-prepared for life’s future endeavors.

Reader Review
“From chapter to chapter, 15 in all, O’Connor connects on all the key points: Establishing a coaching philosophy. Choosing your staff. Dealing with a difficult parent. Working with the game officials and dealing with penalties…For now, O’Connor is just hopeful that his book will be beneficial to others in the field…”
