Brilliant. For anyone coaching children this child-centred philosophy should be paramount. Remember you are coaching children not coaching football, rugby, hockey, etc!!

As economist Jeffrey Sachs says:
"I believe we absolutely should have such bold goals for our country. By 2030 let’s cut the poverty at least by half. By 2030 let’s cut the inequality in our country decisively so it’s like the northern European countries. Not like this god-awful inequality that we have in the United States... that is what’s degrading American society. Not just the technical issues. Not just the rising inequality but this spirit that you’re a winner or you’re a loser. And if you’re a loser get out of the way. That’s Ayn Rand talking. It’s ugly and we’ve had enough of it."

Fantastic! I hope all kids coaches read this. I love coaching kids. They are open, have sharp minds and just want to have fun. I come to a session well prepared but allow a lot of room for listening to them and let them give the direction - I just keep them under control. Winning is not an issue. Some of my parents disagree but I just refuse to put any importance on winning. My players must grow into the game in a fun way. In future there will be enough time for winning. Now we focus on the fundamentals of rugby, enjoying sport and have fun. Thank you for a very useful post.
