Introducing the Coaching Better Workshop

Athletic directors: Maximize the impact of your athletic program and coaching staff

Developed under the direction of world-renowned coach educator Dr. Wade Gilbert, the Coaching Better Workshop is your opportunity to assemble coaches of all sports to examine priorities, share experiences, mentor coaches, build camaraderie, foster accountability, and prepare for success.

Whether you conduct on an in-service day, a professional development day, or a preseason coaches’ meeting, the Coaching Better Workshop is an efficient way for you as athletic director to ensure the readiness of your coaches.

As AD-facilitator, you’ll have everything you need to lead the three-hour workshop with ease. For your investment, you’ll receive a package of instructor materials that you’ll use to lead your coaches through the workshop’s six modules. The modules correspond with sections of Gilbert's book, Coaching Better Every Season, and are designed to help you:

• Develop and adhere to a positive coaching philosophy
• Build and foster a strong team culture
• Design and conduct practices that promote athlete development
• Prepare athletes and teams to compete successfully and achieve peak performance
• Implement evaluation systems for individual, team, and program improvement
• Promote professional development and personal well-being

Whether your sport programs have enjoyed great success or are struggling to find footing, the Coaching Better Workshop will support new and experienced coaches in their professional development and help them approach their roles with greater confidence and enthusiasm.
