Sports do not build character, coaches do. But do coaches really know how to use sports to build character? Interscholastic athletics profoundly impacts the youth in our communities. However, the impact of the prevailing “win-at-all-costs” sports landscape
often harms parents, administrators, officials, coaches, and particularly our young athletes.

Being a coach today is hard work, but being a transformational coach is even harder. Coaches cannot do it on their own. The Nashville Coaching Coalition is a team of your neighbors who are no longer willing to leave a young person’s athletic experience to chance. We believe there is simply too much at stake.

Nashville Coaching Coalition has brought meaning to our program and helped our players and staff really come alive. I have watched leaders be born, conflicts resolved in many areas, and tolerance of others develop.

From my work with NCC I took away that no matter where a coach comes from we really all have the same story and the same opportunity to affect change in ourselves and our community.

My experiences with NCC have allowed me to coach from a totally different perspective. I focus more on the player and the relationships, instead of just what the outcome is going to be. And through this, I have just enjoyed coaching so much more.

Working with the Nashville Coaching Coalition this year has been transformative. Our work has only begun, but I’m excited to know that this incredible resource is available for our coaching staff so that we can continue to become people of positive significance in the lives of the young people we coach.
