Coaches arguably play the most visible role within an athletes’ entourage. Creating and maintaining a strong relationship between you and your athlete is vital to their success, and you should be acting as a leader and mentor to them. And it’s not only the technical advice that matters, but your motivational and emotional skills can also turn a good athlete into a great one.
