Recreational Coaches play a critical role in society. Surveys suggest that coaches are among the top three influential people in a child’s life. In adult sports, athletes are often varied in their goals, skills, fitness and abilities. Recreational adult athletes often require guidance as their experience with the sport can be very limited.
