How to develop a “Culture Of Care” in youth sports?
I believe it starts from the Inside/Out. In other words, it starts with you YOU coach! A coach is responsible for developing the whole player (values+character+emotion) and integrating individuals into a team environment where they can thrive. I use the Culture Of Care module to help guide my intentions on and off the court. It’s a reminder (when things get hard) of my purpose. I try to instill these characteristics and values with my players so they can enjoy and live life to the fullest.
A coach needs to be an intentional leader. Through your intentions you can pass on information and inspiration that determines your Culture Of Care.
A Culture Of Care is about influencing players to be the best they can be. When you influence someone, you have their respect and their attention.
