Think about your favorite locker.

My locker was pretty clean most of the time. That’s just how I am: a neat freak. But my players’ lockers? Most lockers out there are filled with all kinds of things!

Pair of cleats, old pair of cleats, 13 socks, an old ball glove, a few balls, seeds spilt all over, 3 water bottles, a belt . . . . . . . and the list goes on right?!

Just like most lockers are filled with things that you may or may not need everyday, this podcast will focus on a variety of topics meant for most coaches most of the time.

Obviously, a girls volleyball coach in Tennessee probably won’t want to hear much about the 6 Commandments of Your Kick Return Team! We won’t spend much time on xs and os. NO time on defensive or offensive x and os!

Lockers get locked, to keep them safe.

I want this podcast to be a safe place for coaches to come to during the week. Not a “safe space.” I ain’t talking about that. I’m just talking about a place you can come, as the coach of any sport to find a home!

Lockers aren’t good all alone!

And those who use lockers aren’t designed to be alone either. Think about how lame a locker room would be with just one locker! Lockers need support. Coaches need support. I want this podcast to be a support to coaches!

Great Content

As a young gun after college I want to coach. This podcast has helped me to understand what it really takes and I’ll take this knowledge to hopefully acquire an assistant job and ultimately a head coach position. Thank you Chris!

Extremely useful podcast!

I’ve listened to many self help style podcasts in the past. They vary in quality and usefulness. I found the content in the eight laces show to be really valuable. It’s good specific advice that I think could apply to many fields even beyond coaching. But for coaching, some of this is priceless. I have two coaching friends who subscribed to the podcast, learned a lot and entered the coaching job market this year. Both of them attribute their getting interviews to information gained from this show.

Excellent podcast!!

What a breathe of fresh air. Coach Fire does an amazing job communicating what us coaches are thinking. Thanks for the encouragement and direction. Entertaining and informative. And no I am not his brother or relative.
