Webinar 1: Refine your process and begin to develop a better understanding of the responsibility AND opportunity you have as you coach beginning level athletes.  This webinar will teach you how to create your coaching “roadmap”, by using basic exercises along with your foundational knowledge to build your methodology.  This is the “how to” of jumping singles to doubles quickly without compromising technical integrity.

Webinar 2: In this webinar, we will begin to dissect the complexity of communication in your role as a coach.  We will cover how the language of coaching can be a powerful tool in strategizing for your athlete's journey.  Choice of wording, timing, delivery and appropriateness will be discussed with regards to various situations. 

Webinar 3: In this webinar, we will discuss the various stages of element mastery and the correlating age/skill appropriate mind-body milestones. We will explore the potential advantages and pitfalls of the mind-body connection as they relate to avoiding or overcoming emotional barriers.  Additionally, we will look into the development of an athlete as they progress and the expectations that change throughout their career. 

Webinar 4: In this discussion, we will explore how powerful the mind-body connection is to becoming a successful athlete.  Highlights of the session will include your role as a coach in taking a pro-active approach to mental training with your students, mental and emotional milestones, coaching your athletes to trust their training when it matters most, and the deliberate use of language that will empower your athletes throughout their journey.  Join us to establish your "how to" guide to incorporating psychology concepts into your everyday coaching with athletes at every age and level.

In the "Power of Leadership" toolbox, we will discuss and refine our goals as they relate to managing the athletes and support staff whom we guide on a daily basis.  Topics will include understanding leadership styles and theories, communication pitfalls, and characteristics of a leader.  The utilization of current research in leadership to create, implement, and impact your team will prove to be a valuable resource in your success as a coach.

Join us as we demystify the toe loop from beginning to end... singles through quads!  We will dive into the mechanics of the toe loop and will give coaches as many drills, tips and tools as we can fit into the session!  With an understanding that toe loops often prove difficult to teach, correct or refine, we will also cover creating a technical progression which includes drills and exercises.  This progression can serve as a guideline for mastery of this commonly erroneously performed jump!
