“You have to have patience to allow them (the athletes) to figure out what works best for them.”
“What are the things that can actually anchor me down in a time of complete uncertainty?”
“How are you going to be the best coach that you can be for your athletes? I don’t think that’s going to be on low sleep or being over worked because, like we said, our seasons are long.”

This weeks episode of The Podcast I had the opportunity to sit down and catch up with Daniel Guzman and chat about flexibility in our programming and communication. After a quick run down of how he got back to LA we dive right into the unique challenges around physical preparation going into this off season. With the pandemic there are unique challenges to the athletes in their preparation with the restrictions that people are living under, which in some places is eliminating “pick up” and that could be a primary stimuli in their off season. We then discuss how the pandemic has taught us how to communicate better and forced us to reflect on our practice, and find better ways to get input from our athletes. We then discuss some aspects of the “off season” that we feel may be misinterpreted including goal setting, keeping the primary focus the focus, and autonomy/learning for the athlete. We finish off discussing the impact this has had on coaching health, and how it has made both of us find our “totems” to ground ourselves to find our “shut off” points to pause from work.
