While I’m sure you hang on my every word and can’t wait for the next Coach Dawn post to come out, I know that some of you may have been busy coaching during the A to Z series and could have missed a few posts.  So, I’m going to take the next few days to recap that series…hope you enjoy the review!

The 3 A’s of Successful Teams.  Our athletes need three things in order to be successful…check out how we can define what success looks like for our athletes.

B Is For Books: 5 Books That Made Me A Better Coach.  Find out why I love Gender & Competition, The Talent Code, Quiet Strength, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and Wooden.  Great books!
