Quotes
How often should we evaluate athletes?
We have to understand that our athletes are going to change year to year, or even month to month. Constant evaluation and re evaluation is extremely important.
 
How can we help our athletes recover better?
Poor sleep quality is rampant amongst all levels of athletes. That is our #1 recovery strategy. If you don't get proper sleep, then you cant recover.
 
On something he has learned since being in the medical field
I do not think surgery is always the best option for everyone anymore. 
 
Where do coaches get it wrong?
Cookie cutters are for cookies. Not everybody is the same, so we cant expect everyone to move in the same way
 
Where do coaches get it wrong?
Human movement is incredibly complex and joints don't normally work in a uniform manner. 
 
Where do coaches get it wrong?
The coaches who push the cookie cutter mold see a standard bell curve of success. You then only get about 1/4 of your athletes that are actually making improvements. 
 
what qualities do the best coaches have?
The best coaches always have more to learn. They seek quality information and apply it to their athletes on an individual basis.
