Welcome to Season 9, Episode 14, of the ParentingAces Podcast. I hope you’re all staying well and continuing to stay home.
In this week’s show, I have the pleasure of speaking again with John O’Sullivan, soccer coach and the mastermind behind Changing the Game Project. John has recently released his latest book, EVERY MOMENT MATTERS (click here to purchase through our Amazon Shop), and we dive into its content and discuss how the lessons can apply to tennis coaches and parents.
John is committed to a philosophy of athlete-centered coaching. He devotes whatever time he has – outside his own soccer coaching commitments – educating coaches, national governing bodies, and others on specific tactics to give youth sports back to the kids. During this time of sheltering at home, John is living that philosophy on a daily basis by holding virtual practices with his young athletes which he details in our conversation.
