Excellent post Nick - lessons for coaches AND parents!! It reminds me of one of my favourite quotes..... Raise you words, not your voice. It is the rain that grows the flowers, not the thunder....

Great article. A template for all to follow. I wish I had done these things as a younger coach more often.

For me, the last point, about feedback, is perhaps the most difficult to enact effectively. I know there are some great posts on feedback elsewhere. However, I think too many coaches (and I'm one who falls into this trap), think that coaching is all about feedback...lots of it.

A great blog, it also applies to my environment coaching paddle sports in a recreational rather than completion setting. For new paddlers you need to build that trust and rapport especially around 'self rescue'. Capsizing in a river, which is a bit murky and sometimes cold is an anxiety provoking situation, but a skill which needs to be learnt. Some will embrace the challenge others not. For the latter a great deal. I am going to share with my club colleagues
