How Many High Fives?

Did you know that 70% of youth drop out of team sports by the age of 13?  In this fascinating interview Scott tells us how he learned about Positive Coaching and how it has impacted his athletes and parents.

We talk about the role of coach being so much more than just a coach, his own involvement in youth sports and how that shaped him, and balancing sports with free time.  On one of Scott’s teams the stats they collect is how many high fives were given.

Scott shares a tried and true tip about the 5 to 1 ratio and some suggestions for parents on raising a young athlete.
