Are You Focused on Your Coaching Tree?


During a sports business career development panel I had the pleasure of moderating earlier this year, the discussion turned to professional "coaching trees". For those unfamiliar with the term: in sports, a coaching tree is a lot like a family tree. Head coaching “godfathers” are the heart of each tree, while the branches represent all the coaches that "godfather" mentored, those coaches' trainees who moved on to coach their own teams, and so on.
