    Being a C.O.A.C.H.
    Being a C.O.A.C.H. provides an introduction to volunteer coaching and working with players ages 8 to 14. Covered are the responsibilities of coaching, coaching philosophy, coaching for character, and communicating with athletes and parents.


    Coaching Safety
    Coaching Safety deals with issues for ensuring safe play, such as establishing safety plans and examining equipment, fields, and courts. Topics addressed include creating a safe environment, treating injuries, understanding liabilities surrounding the treatment of injuries, and stretching to help prevent injuries.


    Preparing for Game Day
    Preparing for Game Day explains how to plan teams, conduct practices, and play rosters for games and sporting events. Contents feature understanding the games approach to coaching, teaching sport skills, preparing practice plans, and evaluating player performance.


    Winning Respect
    Interscholastic and club sport coaches face challenges in helping their athletes develop not only skills and strategies but also character, respect, and responsibility. Winning Respect helps coaches address those issues. As athletes watch the video, they’ll see kids just like them talking about their feelings relating to respect for opponents, for teammates and teams, for officials, for the game, and between athletes and the coach. The video mixes kids’ commentary with well-known professional, college, and Olympic athletes exhibiting first-class sport behavior. It’s a powerful tool for introducing athletes to the concepts of winning respect both inside and outside the sport arena.


    Officiating Youth Sport
    Officiating Youth Sport highlights the keys to successful youth sport officiating, including what officials’ duties and responsibilities are, how tightly to call games, how to be fair and impartial, how to communicate with coaches and players, how to handle conflict, and how to keep the sport safe and fun for kids. In this video, experienced sport officials share their expertise to help new or novice officials learn the fundamentals of officiating and being an effective official. Officials of all youth sports gain a solid foundation in the principles of officiating to help them call games with confidence.


    SportParent
    SportParent shows real kids giving their views of parents’ involvement in their sports. The kids tell how their parents’ cheers boost their spirits and how torturous it can be when their parents yell at them or complain to the coach or referee. These kids’ words serve as a wake-up call for any parent and say more about sport parent behavior than any adult ever could.
