Coaching fosters Discipline. It creates new steps and systems and structures – not to imprison but to set us free to reach the potential that we are meant to enjoy.
Mr. Philips was my high schoool swimming coach. He was a no nonsense man that disciplined us with a solid consistent workout everyday. He kept me on the team and I became a decent competitive swimmer. At the end of the year he awarded me with the most improved swimmer trophy.
Being part of his team became a lifetime favorite memory. His coaching discipline changed my life as I engaged in the discipline along with him. Stroke by oft-times painful stroke.
A disciplined coach with a willing-to-be-disciplined coachee create a winning team.
