Pennsylvania State Athletic Directors Association (PSADA) Coaching Better Workshop

Developed under the direction of world-renowned coach educator Dr. Wade Gilbert, the PSADA Coaching Better Workshop is an opportunity for athletic directors to bring together coaching staffs of all sports to examine priorities, build a positive culture and continuity, evaluate and enhance performance, and prepare for success. 

As AD-facilitator, you’ll have everything you need to lead the workshop with ease. 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 you conduct on an in-service day, a professional development day, a preseason coaches’ meeting, or over a series of workshops held throughout the year, the Coaching Better Workshop is an efficient way for you as athletic director to ensure the readiness of your coaches.
