Coaches Expectations


The Coach in My World
Pamper me and I will not respect you.
Manipulate me and I will resist you.
Intimidate me and I will reject you
Humiliate me and I will despise you.
Prepare for me and I will trust you.
Respect me and I will respond to you.
Guide me and I will follow you.
Be an example for me and I will be like you.
