Being a good coach requires more than teaching or correcting a movement, having a keen eye or motivating a young athlete to push themselves pass their own physical and mental limitations. More important is listening, observing and making adjustments on an individual basis as every single person learns differently and responds differently to different coaching styles, cues and methods. While a good coach should have a working model of what a technically correct movement should look like and have the ability to explain the model to the trainee, the route to get there does not always go as planned. Teenagers in particular usually have a lot on their mind whether its home, personal life, school, friends or stress of everyday living that makes focusing on the lift or following instructions or finding motivation exceedingly difficult. It is the good coach or peer mentor who offers advice, adds encouragement or provides the needed support and care to help the struggling youngster to overcome the challenge at hand.
