The Conscious Kid reviews HOW TO COACH GIRLS

theconsciouskid Fearless social justice advocate, and founder of Multicultural Children’s Book Day, Mia Wenjen, teamed up with Boston College’s Head Coach of Women’s Soccer, Alison Foley, to write a book called @howtocoachgirls. This guide book helps coaches create successful teams that motivate girls to stay in sports beyond their middle school years. .
Coaches have a significant ability to impact a girls’s life. Mia and Alison impart practical tips coaches can use to support each girl on a team in wanting to return the next season. They also leverage the ability of sports to teach important life skills, and share strategies on how to build self-advocacy, leadership and confidence. One of my favorite chapters was on Body Image & Sports, and how a coach’s language about things like body size and food can do a lot of damage.
.
In addition, 15 professional coaches from a range of sports, including former Olympian athletes, give their advice on what girls need from a coach to allow them to flourish in sports, and most importantly, have fun. The book was published yesterday so is available now! Check out @howtocoachgirlsand @pragmaticmom for more information.
