In the previous post I referred to the "Madden Minute" and John Madden's take on the importance of being yourself as a coach.
What style of coach has been the best for you as an athlete? Do you prefer the dominating, strong personality? Do you prefer the introspective, intellectual coach? What do you need to make you fast?
Please take part in the newest poll of the week - in the sidebar to your right. Then, if you can leave a comment for all to see about that coach.
Share your thoughts on coaching styles and we will compile some of the comments for everyone to read. Link to your favourite coach's web site if you have one - are you an NCAA rower now - link to your site! A school rower? Tell us about your best coach and link to your site.
