Why Read & Subscribe to The Physical Movement?

The Physical Movement is a newsletter for all those involved and touched by youth sports. Athletes, coaches, educators, administrators, parents and officials. We cover leadership through play, sports, and human performance.

We have leaders in every community. Those leading others across various sports and disciplines.  Those who have invested their time and energy to introducing fun, skills, discipline, perseverance and practice. Whom have taught the values of teamwork, commitment, competition and overcoming adversity.

Who Writes for The Physical Movement?

Hi, my name is Greg Lawlor. I have spent over 30 years coaching, teaching and learning in the field of sport, physical education, health, fitness and human performance.

I don’t think I am the only one who has noticed a leadership void lately?

Is there a void? Or, are we not looking in the right places for inspiration?

The Physical Movement is a forum for that inspiration and to tap into the best practices that are making an impact.

The internet is a busy place. The Physical Movement brings together information so we can build our knowledge base and be better for those we serve.

We don’t focus on tactics, we focus on leadership.

It is a huge commitment to coach and volunteer our time.

A lot of skills required.

A lot of time and sacrifice required.

Whether you are a coach, educator, parent, official or athlete there will be something here for you.

In this day and age, it is very difficult to find simple best practices that allow us to be as good as we can.

My commitment to you is to honor your time and keep the bar high in sharing information that can help you in your journey as a coach, teacher and/or parent. These are the soft skills that may fall outside our area of expertise or get forgotten, but are so important in leading a group of people.

To subscribe and read The Physical Movement means that we are striving to be our best, so we can be of service those who want to be at their best.
