WYC 055 – Youth Soccer - Jill Kochanek - PCA Coach of the Year and Communicating without talking
Today’s guest is Jill Kochanek. Jill has been a teacher and girls soccer coach at Oldfields School in Baltimore for 3 years. She was 1 of 25 award winners for the Positive Coaches Alliance Double-Goal Coach Award for 2015. Jill has been involved with and traveled to Nicaragua with the 'Soccer without Borders' program. Jill also just completed her first Ironman Triathlon, and She is now studying for her PHD in Sports Psychology at the University of Minnesota.
Two huge ideas I took from Jill were in the 2nd quarter where she shares about how to communicate without talking, and ways to build self confidence in young athletes. I hope you enjoy her insights and stories!
