American youth athletes are abandoning athletics at an alarming rate, with 70% of children dropping out of youth sport programs by the age of 14. One of the top reasons for this dropout rate is poor coaching. Yet, only 30% of youth and high school coaches have any formal training. The Transformational Coach gives coaches the tools to build relationships, move their teams forward, and improve the development of their players as they progress to the next level. The book teaches them how to guide with a purpose. With better coaching, the youth participation crisis in the United States can be addressed, and the negative parent perception can be fixed. This book will develop strong coaches who will lead the way. The coaching profession has seen 58% of coaches quit or consider quitting because of parent issues; 82% of coaches report that dealing with parents has gotten worse; 25% of new coaches leave the profession within the first three years. The transformational coach can use mindfulness strategies to change the alarming trend in youth athletics for the better. The Transformational Coach is about shifting the mindset of coaches-and even players and parents-to build stronger players, a stronger team, and a stronger program
