  1. Great post this should be followed by every coach young or old.

      Thanks for the feedback Mike! My personal favorite is “… Will keep in mind that youth sports is for the athletes, not the adults coaching them.” If coaches kept this in mind, their seasons would be a success regardless of the record on the field.

    I think this is a great list of ethics for any coach, regardless of sport. A coach can have such a dramatic impact on a young player and what they teach their team will stick with them for the rest of their lives. You have to live up to their expectations!

    • Kyle Nelson says:


      I could not agree more. Most of our athletes will never earn a dime or a college scholarship playing sports, but the example we set and the lessons they learn will be with them as they go through the rest of their lives.
