LaVoi discusses coach-athlete fit on ESPN.com

LaVoiN-2010.jpg School of Kinesiology lecturer and Tucker Center associate director Dr. Nicole LaVoi is featured in an ESPN.com blog on determining a good fit between a coach and an athlete.

As part of the process, LaVoi suggests that athletes ask coaches directly what their coaching style is. "Be willing to ask, 'What's your philosophy?' and 'Why do you coach?' when you meet potential college coaches," she says. "It's a big red flag if a coach is unwilling or unable to answer."

The blog post also appears as a special report in the Winter 2011 issue of the magazine ESPNHS Girl.
