On the episode I talk with Kyle Brennan, Player Development Coach for the Huston Astros.
Kyle and I first met playing summer baseball together in Allentown, PA. We were both catchers and had a mind towards exercise and nutrition. Fast forward a few years and now we are both in the exercise field trying to pay it forward so that athlete's can have brighter futures.
Kyle's passion for the sport and intelligence is evident in the conversation as well as his light personality! In this episode we talk about:
- Why there is a disconnect between sports skill coaches (like your head coach) and your exercise coaches (like your strength coach).
- Why it is sooooo important for the skills coach to better understand the exercise component
- How Individual Player Assessment will lead to less injury, better performance on the field, and allow the skill coaches to coach the player more effectively and individually.
- Why player development, and physical development (athletes are playing too much and training too little...) are overlooked in the growth years of athletes and how it can lead to more harm than good for the athlete's success at getting into college or playing at the professional level.
- And more!!
You can reach out to Kyle with any questions through his instagram:
Kyle and I will also be releasing a mini-webinar on what all of this joint assessment, training and coaching looks like next week on my website in the Move Well TV section. Stay tuned!
