A conversation I want to Hear

Thought provoking Looking forward to future episodes. Encouraged to find a conversation about the positive nature and potential dynamic teaching platform that is coaching and competing. Jim is not 6’2”.

Insightful, positive

These podcasts are great. They take issues that impact athletes and coaches off the field (mental health for one) and use scientific research to show how athletics can play a role in helping shape individuals in positive ways. Participation, redefining success and educating coaches and parents on how to connect to athletes to build success on and off the field is a noble goal and this podcast takes a unique, thoughtful effort to make these issues better know. 5 stars!!
