2, LESSONS FROM LOU HOLTZ
Lou Holtz, is a legend in US College football coaching and is the only coach in NCAA history to lead six different programs to bowl games. A significant highlight of being invited to the US Lacrosse Coaching Conference in Baltimore was to hear Lou speak. These are the key lessons from this legend coach. https://www.athleteassessments.com/articles/lessons_from_lou_holz.html
3, IMPROVE FASTER – TRAIN CONSCIOUSLY
This article is specifically for athletes. Making the most of your training session is simple. You simply must never be on autopilot when training. A great mentor of mine once said, “If you want to learn quickly – slow down.” In this article, I show you how to get on top of your technical changes faster than ever before to make your training even more effective. https://www.athleteassessments.com/articles/athletes_improve_faster.html
4, SPORTS COMPETE FOR TALENT
What was inspiring about being at six different sports conferences in the last 2 months, was listening to fellow presenters and hearing their perspectives on coaching. What was also interesting, was seeing how each sport approaches coaching education and the role of the coach. https://www.athleteassessments.com/articles/sports_compete_for_talent.html

Now for my favorite quote from Andre Agassi’s book ‘Open’:
“…several sportswriters muse about my transformation, and that word rankles. I think it misses the mark. Transformation is change from one thing to another, but I started as nothing. I didn’t transform, I formed. When I broke into tennis, I was like most kids: I didn’t know who I was, and I rebelled at being told by older people. I think older people make this mistake all the time about younger people, treating them as finished products when in fact they’re in process. It’s like judging a match before it is over, and I’ve come from behind too often, and had too many opponents come roaring back against me, to think that’s a good idea.” (page 372)
Have the best 2010! Please let me know how we can best assist you to make it the year to remember and be proud of.
My best regards,
