Episode #23 – Where Can I Find Information About My Athlete’s Coach?

What You’ll Hear in Today’s 15-Minute Huddle:

Today’s Topic: If the coach/athlete relationship is one of the greatest predictors of a good sports experience for the athlete, what are we doing to help parents find great coaches and to help great coaches be indentified?

What if there was a social media platform that empowered you to understand more about who is coaching your athlete and you were be able to give and get feedback in real time?

Here’s what Bill Kerig, founder of Great Coach, shares with us on today’s episode:

Bill shares his background in sports, business and coaching and how his background led to the creation of Great Coach.

We talk about what Great Coach, how to use it and why it’s so important.

Bill discusses how Great Coach addresses the need for transparency in coaching so that abuse can’t be hidden anymore.

We talk about how we can’t wait on other agencies, the government, the organizations, to protect our kids, we have to take action, too.
