Traditionally coaches have been successful athletes who have done well. They’ve retired from elite sport, and want to pass on their knowledge and experience to the next generation.
These coaches have a lifetime of experience. They know what it takes to get results, how their own coaches helped them achieve great things. They love their sport and keep up to date with the latest websites, blogs and generally staying in touch.
The thing is, their knowledge-base is limited to their personal experience, and these days that’s not good enough.
