Overview

Coaching Matters is a rhymed verse about a child who wants to learn to play baseball. Jake is insecure because of his lack of experience and skills. The rough coaching style of Coach Fred contributes to Jake's insecurities. Jake's wish is to become the coach and teach children how to improve their skills while building their confidence level. When Jake is the coach, there will not be one player who thinks "I can't".

"Coaching is not just about winning. It's about the connections that are forged between young people and caring adults. It's about the sense of pride that takes root when a respected coach offers just the right praise at just the right time. It's about the positive messages that are subtly conveyed, through coaches' twinkling eyes, gentle smiles, and approving nods. It's about coaching and, as this book so beautifully tells us, Coaching Matters."

"Coaching Matters isn't just about a boy trying to learn a new sport; it is also about fostering healthy self esteem, enjoying the learning process, and the importance of being valued as part of a team. We applaud Coaching Matters-because kids need great coaches and this book encourages young athletes and coaches to be caring, responsible, honest and respectful; values espoused by the YMCA."
