So…I’ve written a book! After lots of correspondence with various coaches, I figured out that there’s a great desire to “figure out” the female athlete.
What Coach Dawn’s Guide To Motivating Female Athletes is all about
Coach Dawn’s Guide To Motivating Female Athletes is a 56-page guide that will give you specific steps to increase the competitiveness of your female team. It will show you why battling “girl drama” should be at the top of your list in order to dominate the competition. Also, it has example after example from my coaching life, on how I’ve handled tough situations in the past.
If I know one thing about coaches, it’s that we want to be good at what we do. And I know you want your athletes to be winners and have fun with the sport, this book could be just what you need to go to the next level.
The information in the book is beyond what you’ll find here on the blog. You won’t find this stuff anywhere, on my blog or elsewhere, in one place and in such detail.
How much will Coach Dawn’s Guide To Motivating Female Athletes cost?
Unlike the posts that are here on the blog, I will charge for the ebook. How much? $10. Now before you start thinking that $10 is too much to spend on a PDF file, I want you to consider the quality of the information. I think you’re getting it at a steal for only $10!
You can spend hours on the internet trying to find this information…but it’s not out there. That’s why I wrote the book!
Plus, isn’t your time worth more than $10?
You’ve got practice plans to write, teams to scout, and video to study. Why make more work for yourself? You’ve already got a job…so don’t add scouring the internet for tips on coaching female athletes to your to-do list.
Because it’s a PDF, once you purchase Coach Dawn’s Guide To Motivating Female Athletes, you’ll be able to download it and read it that same day! You can begin putting the ideas to work immediately.
Here are the chapter titles:
1. Motivating the Female Athlete (with four subcategories)
2. The Myth That Is “Girl Drama” (with three subcategories)
3. Why This Is Important (with one subcategory)
Book excerpt from the introduction:
I’d love for you to see this book as a conversation between us. There will be times when you’re reading this and you will feel affirmed because it’s something that you’re already doing. There will be other times, though, where you feel as if I’ve put my hands on your shoulders and am giving you a good shake.
I love coaching female athletes…and I’m not being sarcastic! I enjoy coaching so much that it truly pains me when I hear folks complaining about working with women or girls. Or when I hear a coach say that “girls just aren’t competitive.” Or even worse: “girls can’t get along.”
I just shake my head because it doesn’t have to be that way! If you’re currently a coach and having trouble with your female athletes, take heart. You’re not the only one who hasn’t mastered working with female teams.
Let me tell you what…I’ve been there too, coach. I’ve had those teams that look like world beaters on paper, but they can’t get along well enough to put it all together. As you’ll read later, I’ve even had teams where the setters wouldn’t set certain hitters because they had some sort of issue off the court that had nothing to do with our sport.
It’s so frustrating!
So that’s why I wrote this book. Because we’ve all been there.
Working with female athletes is our chance to teach leadership, goal setting, team chemistry…all of the intangibles of sport that they can carry with them for their entire life.
Most importantly, to me at least, we have a chance to show them that females can get along. That female coaches of females can be successful. That women can work and play alongside of one another…and still be friends.
