The role of a coach is not who you are, it is what you do.

“A coach will impact more people in one year, than an average person will impact their whole life” – Billy Graham

Being a coach can be an amazing and meaningful experience. It provides an opportunity to experience many different life situations, positively influence young players and those around you. You create game plans that when executed well, can bring much satisfaction as the team continues to grow and win games. It is a fantastic feeling when the team gels and makes the shift from me, to we, to us.

However, when things don’t go well, and the losses start to pile up, it can become very stressful. When others begin to question your leadership or if you have lost the locker room, you may experience anger, depression, frustration or feel overwhelmed. You may find the stress negatively affecting your physical or mental well-being. This can become a very lonely and challenging time for you.
