"This book lays the groundwork for how to go about coaching youth sports. Without getting into the Xs and Os, which most coaching books seem to focus on, Steve takes a fresh approach where the goal is for everyone involved to enjoy and grow from the experience. His 7 steps give every coach - new or experienced, no matter the sport, the blueprint to accomplish this. With this in place and expectations set, it makes it much easier for coaches to then focus their attention inside the lines. I've used many of Steve's guidelines with my own teams, and the result has been many rewarding seasons for my players, their parents, and myself."
"I think that this course is extremely valuable to any coach, especially youth level, but up to and including the collegiate level. I HIGHLY recommend this course. If I were responsible for a youth program or I was a high school athletic director, I would implement this training immediately and make it mandatory for anyone coaching within the respective programs."
"A must read for youth coaches. A must read for anyone considering coaching at the youth level. Really lays out the keys to making youth sports a positive and enriching experience. Park and recreation departments should make it part of their coach training."
