Webinar: The Four Keys to Coaching Any Triathlete - Coaching Strategies to Get the Most from Your Individual Athletes
Topic: The Four Keys to Coaching Any Triathlete - Coaching Strategies to Get the Most from Your Individual Athletes
Understanding what brings an athlete to your triathlon training and what they are trying to accomplish once they get there is critical to coaching them to be the best they can be. It also makes your job easier and more enjoyable in bringing together a winning triathlon squad!
What works for each individual athlete is unique to them. A coach’s primary challenge is to understand what makes their athletes ‘tick’ and to coach them accordingly. Today, coaches are expected to know how to effectively read the signs and pick up the clues as to what motivates their athletes to bring out the best in them and the team as a whole. This presentation covers effective coaching strategies that get the best results with different styles of athletes. Find out why you find some athletes are ‘easier to coach’ than others and how to get through to the more ‘challenging’ athletes in your squad. This knowledge not only makes you more effective but more satisfied in your coaching role.
