CBNA Faculty Member Writes For National Magazine

An article written by Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Health/Physical Education teacher and girls’ soccer coach Josh Hils was published in the July/August 2014 edition of Coach & AD Magazine, a professional magazine for college and high school Athletic Directors and coaches, which has a national readership of over 36,000 subscriptions in print and online. The article, titled Setting Up Athletes for Failure, grew out of Mr. Hils’ experience and passion for helping coaches build positive, student athlete centered coaching philosophies. The article focuses on the ways coaches can unintentionally create situations in which student athletes are set up to fail. It also illustrates ways for coaches to avoid these set ups and tips about how to create a positive coaching environment that is the extension of what happens in the educational setting.
