As a young strength coach, its often difficult to decipher the sheer amount of information that is available in our field. This puts great pressure on coaches like myself, as we are programmed to constantly critique and want to further our knowledge base. Speaking from experience, this leads to being swallowed up in an all-consuming knowledge storm- the more you read, the less you begin to understand.
As a coach working in professional football, you can find yourself being unchallenged in your thoughts and practice, with other people in your department not willing to challenge you, whatever the reason. This leads to stagnation as a coach and is a place I have spent a large part of my coaching career in. I needed to break the mould and begin to once again, challenge my thoughts and practice.
Upon joining the community, I didn't know what to expect. I immediately felt out of my depth when I saw some of the names of the coaches who are posting the various webinars and threads. This anxiety was very quickly quashed, when I realised that questions were being answered in a eloquent, articulate and concise way, whereby no question was too big or too small. Upon dropping my coach's ego, I decided to delve into some threads and engage in some conversations.
This was arguably a turning point in my strength coach career. I had finally found a place where other strength coaches had been through my frustrations and had come through the other side with solutions. Whatever question you have, this is the place to dive in and find out. The monthly webinars are supplied by the highest quality of coach and are always fantastically informative, with each one tweaking my ever-growing performance plan. I cannot recommend the community enough.
