Summer Reading for Coaches and Athletes’ Success


Do you have a summer reading list for yourself and your athletes?

Athletes tend to apply more consistent action when they have a clear understanding and true belief in a proven method behind the madness. So let’s first start by helping you explain some of the benefits of reading to your athletes.


Improves Intelligence:

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss


Improves Empathy:

One common quality of all great coaches is that they have the ability to empathize with their athletes prior to acting out.  Reading can assist in developing the ability to see things from another’s perspective, which can have a significant impact on the relationships you build with your athletes.

“People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care,”


Reduces Stress and Depression:

Reading provides the opportunity to escape from the worries and stresses that  today’s student athletes experience from their peers, family and coaches on a daily basis.


Improves Memory and Focus:

Just like going for a daily run can improve an athlete’s cardiovascular conditioning, reading on a daily basis can push our overall limits of mental health, memory and focus.
