Coaching is Teaching at its Best! featured on NAYS Website

I was recently interviewed by Greg Bach, Content Editor for the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS). We had a good discussion about youth sports and coaching in general. We talked at length about some of the points discussed in my latest book, Coaching is Teaching at its Best!  and he  followed up with a nice piece on their website.

Very kind of NAYS to do this. Thank you.
