Sport offers a unique opportunity to teach children skills that are important to a coach, like focus, effort, positive team relationships, goal-setting and emotion management.  Remembering that coaches don’t coach a sport, they coach a child, it’s important to think about the responsibility of coaches to use this time to develop skills that teach ethical decision-making and give athletes a significant voice on the team by asking lots of questions of them.
