Important communications tips for Youth soccer coaches!

Here at "Taking You Beyond the Game" we continue to develop and provide a series of original articles on the importance of communication between youth sports coaches, parents and their players.  In fact, for many years now we have conducted seminars for youth sports Clubs on the topic, “How you can build Confidence and Character in young players through better Communication”. 

These seminars have always been tremendously well received (a number of testimonials are available on our Prospect Communications Inc.  website) in all cases, perhaps because they provide an honest—but positive—approach to working through some of the issues that youth coaches and parents face on a daily basis.

This has led us to develop an eBook called, simply, “A Guide to Effective Communication for Youth Soccer coaches”.  The book provides a series of common-sense, practical tips and suggestions to enhance relationships but most importantly, to help build the confidence (and therefore the skills!) of developing young players.

For now, the book is only available on iPads (Apple iBooks/iTunes), but we hope to have it on other platforms very soon.  If you are interested in checking out the book’s preview page, click here (Canada).  If you are in the United States, this is the iTunes link.  Readers in the U.K. can click here.

The response we have received so far has been overwhelmingly positive.  We hope you will agree that this book delivers value for coaches and parents and as a result (and most importantly) for young players.
