EvelChat #22 “What Does ‘Good Coaching’ Mean To You?”: A Chat with Harvey Maguire.
Play • 1 hr 19 min

Meet Harvey Maguire.  Harvey is a former soccer coach and practicing professional physical therapist in Loughborough, England.  He is also a sprint coach working at the university and club level. 

I thought it might be an interesting conversation to record myself and Harvey discussing some of the things he faces as a development coach who works with athletes new to the sport or training at a relatively young training age.  Mainly we discuss the challenges he faces sorting through the world of information in front of him and how to identify “good coaching” in an effort to cultivate his own model of good coaching practice. 

I think listeners from all walks of sport life will get something from this one.
