WYC 039 - Dr. Michael Phillips talks Long Term Athlete and Coach Development

Today’s guest is Dr. Michael Phillips.  Michael is a professor of exercise science at Tennessee Tech University.  He has coached basketball at all levels - 5th grade AAU, middle school, high school, and 8 years at the collegiate level.  Michael also has studied and presented the concept of LTAD and LTCD - Long Term Athlete Development and Long Term Coach Development - concepts used by the Canadians and British, and being studied by the US Olympic Committee.  Michael is married and has 2 children, a 13 year-old son and 8 year-old daughter.

One huge idea I took from Michael was in the 3rd quarter – where he shares a different way to think about discipline on your team.  A second huge idea was in the 4th quarter – where Michael shares the concept of long term athlete and coach development.  I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
