Using Teachable Moments To Help Athletes Grow

Share This Resource

Watch youth sport coaches from around the country put the principles from Play Positive and Positive Coaching Alliance to work with their athletes.

High-profile televised sports provide many great examples for teaching young athletes life lessons. Coaches can engage their athletes by connecting their own efforts and learnings with those of higher-level athletes. In this example, the coach talks about recent Olympic Hockey games to tie in what he is trying to teach the kids. He seizes recent hockey headlines as a teachable moment.

Positive Coaching Alliance is proud to have worked with Liberty Mutual Insurance to create this video and other powerful resources.
