Coach Them Well includes four college coaches' reflections on the ministry of coaching. Each reflection contains the faith story of each coach as well as the insight gained through more than one hundred years of combined coaching experience. Each coach also shares compelling stories about the students they have coached. The four coaches represent the diversity of coaching itself. Included are the reflections of an NCAA Division I football coach alongside the thoughts of a Catholic university women's basketball coach. An NCAA Final Four basketball coach considers the hurdles athletes need to conquer, and the Notre Dame University men's swimming coach looks at the importance of mentoring. No matter the age, ability, or competition level of your athletes, this book is a wonderful reminder of the trust that youth, parents, schools, and communities place in coaches to truly 'coach them well.'
