Author Sharkie Zartman knows volleyball from every angle. With numerous national titles and hall of fame memberships as both a player and a coach, Zartman decided to start coaching kids when her daughters wanted to play volleyball. She joined with her husband, also a professional. Easy, right?

With all their expertise in volleyball, Zartman and her husband soon realized that there was more to coaching kids than simply knowing how to play and coach the game at higher levels. Eleven years and four national youth titles later, she wrote So You Think You Can Coach Kids? to share what they learned and to help other adults avoid the pitfalls encountered when coaching youth sports.

Touching on important topics such as coaching as a parent, the importance of nutrition for young athletes, and how to manage your stress as a coach, this guide has all the tools you need to enjoy one of the greatest roles you can play in a kid’s life—coach.
