"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."
