A Waldorf Approach to Coaching Team Sports

Dean Stark

148 pp.  
5 1/2" x 8 1/2"




A Waldorf Approach to Coaching Team Sports deals passionately with human striving for excellence carried in a noble spirit. Dean Stark speaks of the great importance in the teen years of having positive role models and of being challenged to develop commitment to high ideals.

The first edition of this book—Coaching Team Sports in a Waldorf School—met with enthusiastic response and requests for more information, which is provided in this revised and expanded edition. Parents and teachers, as well as coaches, will find a wealth of practical information and an antidote to the cynicism of today.
