We had the great opportunity for Dr. Jeff Duke, one of the foremost expert regarding the cultural influence in the coaching profession on society’s morals, visit Cedar Rapids and hold a session for our local coaches.
He has developed and authored the “Three Dimensional Pyramid of Coaching Success” that has revolutionized the sport coaching landscape. Jeff shared about different levels of coaching: (1) Fundamentals: if you are going to be successful at any level in coaching you have to be able to teach the physical fundamentals; (2) Motivation: dealing with the mind and psyche of an athlete, the mental part of competition; (3) The HEART of the athlete: can you capture the heart of an athlete as a coach?.
It was a great evening and look forward to seeing more coaches reach athletes on more than just one dimension. If you are interested in more information about how FCA encourages coaches, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
