SGG episode #6: Developing learning targets for your team
Coaches are important educational leaders in our schools, communities, and universities. The Sport and the Growing Good (SGG) podcast provides embedded, front-line insights on winning and positive development. The SGG podcast can be heard here and on all major podcast platforms.
Youth coaches can identify clear “learning targets” for team members and then center the team’s expectations – and communication – around these targets. In this SGG podcast, Pete and Q discussed:
1. Holding tight to developmental goals amid the pressure to win in youth sports;
2. The “Matheny Manifesto;”
3. Tom Izzo holding players accountable and developing a team culture;
4. Learning targets as center points for specific teaching and learning on a team.
