The Biggest Mistake a Coach Can Make…

Similar to Coach Vern Gambetta’s Facebook post a couple of months ago Speed Coach Lee Taft posted something along the same lines. He has allowed me to share his thoughts below. You can find out more information from Coach Taft at

‘Biggest mistakes a coach can make is to not understand the maturation process of kids. Some athletes develop much later while other develop real early. How many times have you seen phenoms at the age of 10, 11, 12 years old and they are labeled the next “Great Player”….than they fade away because everyone catches and passes them up. Then there is the young athlete that coaches push to the sideline because they can’t “Keep Up” due to being smaller, weaker, slower…. Than when they are 17 18 years old they blossom into a great athlete. These are the athlete that stay competitive for years to come. DON’T GIVE UP ON KIDS!!! Coach beyond the end of your nose.’

Interested to hear your thoughts. Please post them in the comments session.
