Coaches play an incredibly influential role in the lives of athletes. Often players spend more time with their coaches than anyone else outside of the home environment. That's why it's crucial that we recognize and hold great coaches up as an example to others. Is your coach a Double-Goal Coach®? A Double-Goal Coach® strives to win while also pursuing the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports while teaching players how to honor the game, filling their emotional tanks, and allowing mistakes as part of the learning process. For criteria, nomination requirements and to see more details about the program, please click here.
