A wide ranging discussion with Kristen Dieffenbach, PhD from West Virginia University on youth sports coaching in the US. We talk how adults impose our values and systems on youth sports often to the detriment of the development of the kids.
John Kessel and I go off on tangents about training ugly, early specialization (not for it), John Wooden, motor learning, making mistakes is not only ok but a great way to learn and lots of other coaching related ideas.
Sam your podcast host introduces the podcast and himself. The first episode deals with his views on youth sport coaching in the US.
