As Requested: My Current Bookmark List
After posting some of my “Bookmarks” a few weeks ago, I have received a number of requests for a more fulsome list. There is some great material here and I encourage coaches to not only take a look but, maybe share some stuff with their athletes and even some of their parents. I will break it down into three categories: Twitter feeds you should follow, videos you should watch, and articles you should read.
Twitter feeds you should follow:
Coach Quotes @CoachMotto
Coach Will @CoachJasonWitt
Pyramid Hockey @johnbecanic
