Coach Pete

Expert advice for Swimmers, Triathletes, and Coaches

Coach is not a mind reader

 What I mean by the statement, “Coach is not a mind reader” is that we can not know if there is a problem with your child unless you tell us. Sometimes parents don’t want to share with the coach that their child may be A.D.D or may have an ailment that will hamper her/his training. We can deal with any problem, if we know about it. Be open with your coach explain to him what the problem may be. It makes life so much easier for your child and the coach.

The above photo is Coach Pete with Olympic Gold Medal Winner Gary Hall and one of coach Pete’s age groupers. Gary suffers from Diabetes as well as little Maria. This problem has not stopped them from training as hard as they could, however the coach knew about it and dealt with it.

Be fair to your child, be fair to the coach…….Discuss your problem, don’t hide it!
