It’s amazing what a coach can learn from our athletes’ feedback!
Joan Hung was recently invited to share what effective coaching practices look like from an athlete’s perspective, at the recent Youth Coaching Conference (YCC) 2022.
I have been coaching Joan since 2015 and am proud to share her candid and light-hearted stories about her Goalball journey, and my coaching practices. There are many lessons here on resilience that can be generalized to any sport and anyone.
Joan and I are also grateful to the National Youth Sport Institute (NYSI) for providing us with an opportunity to share about disability sports, and to Brenda for helping Joan put the presentation deck of slides together.
“I did not choose to be blind but I can choose how to live with it…”

Have you ever wondered if you are a perfectionist?
Chances are, you would consider perfectionism as a positive trait – who doesn’t want to be perfect?
What is Perfectionism?
Perfectionism is defined as a broad personality style characterized by a person’s concern with striving for flawlessness and perfection and is accompanied by critical self-evaluations and concerns regarding others’ evaluations (Stoeber & Childs, 2010).
Here are some signs that you might be a perfectionist:
Procrastinating on a task until you know you can do it perfectly
Deem the results as the most important part of completing the task, you disregard the process you take to get your results
To view a task as incomplete until it meets your expectations
Take a longer time to finish a task that others typically take lesser time to finish
