One World Sports Association initially asks coaches the most fundamental question?
Why do you coach?
The most common answers are: "To give back, to spend time with my kids, I love the sport" But during games and practices, the coach's behavior quickly reveals winning is the real reason.
There is nothing wrong with winning. But if winning is the only goal, the real point of playing sports for the child has been lost.
One World Sports Association takes the time to require coaches to be trained to recognize a game time and/or a training time situation where a SPORTS LIFE and TRUTH lesson can be taught. Many leagues and programs reinforce a compartmentalized approach to playing sports. One World Sports Association believes youth sports provides a dress-rehearsal for real-life. We seek to decompartmentalize sports and life where a coach has the tools and training to take a situation on the court or the field and teach a LIFE- lesson moment based on a real-life TRUTH. This approach to coaching is what sets One World Sports Association apart from other leagues. By providing coaches with the tools and training, your child will gain not only athletic skills and agility to perform successfully at the given sport. But he/she will also gain the confidence and tools to successfully maneuver and adjust to the realities and challenges of adolescence.
