Much is expected of you as a coach. On any given day, you may play the role of educator, physiologist, business executive, and psychologist -- and that's before you even step on the field. With Successful Coaching, you'll expand your knowledge of every facet of the coaching profession and emerge a more complete coach. Grounded in the principles of coaching, behavior, teaching, physical training, and management, Successful Coaching provides a unique blend of the latest sport science research and the hands-on experience and best practices of highly experienced coaches. It's an insightful, practical, and relied-on resource that you're sure to find more valuable than your playbook. Successful Coaching was reviewed by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) and the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) and complies with the NASPE National Standards for Sport Coaches and the NCACE Guidelines for Accreditation of Coaching Education. With more than 500,000 copies sold since the release of the first edition, Successful Coaching is the best-selling coaching methods book ever published. Produced by the American Sport Education Program (ASEP) and written by ASEP founder Rainer Martens, Successful Coaching serves as the text for ASEP's Coaching Principles course, which, along with the Sport First Aid and Coaching Technical and Tactical Skills courses, make up the curriculum for ASEP's Bronze Level coaching certification program.
