Page 7 Positive Relations Inside the System (Cont’d) Dare to use Social Media Networks to keep your team 'in the loop' with gym activities as well as to allow them to easily promote their club, self, and team mates in a positive light to many people, without too much effort and time. Social media sites can also increase the feeling of interconnectedness within the gym, encourage personal responsibility, and help grab interest from potential new members. Hold gym gatherings when possible in order to better get to know each other outside of your daily grind. Summer barbeques, holiday parties, and group celebrations will help build long term relationships and friendly business interactions. TIPS FOR PREVENTING COACH BURNOUT Elect Team Captains from among your stable of boxers. These team leaders must be well trusted and capable of completing the tasks you ask of them. Consider giving this person a key to the gym, so they may be of greater assistance. Team Captain’s job may be to assemble the team for group exercise, gym cleaning, special events, or fund raising activities. They also may be able to arrange personal training for new comers this way, without you having to open and keep watch over the gym. Keep an eye out for parents who show interest in the gym and in the sport, especially those with active boxers in your gym. Keep communications open, and offer them the opportunity to give back to the gym by helping the management and/or athletes. Let people close to you know what areas you are needing assistance in- be it transportation to competitions, media outreach, funding for equipment, or organizing and facilitating workouts. Stay active in your interests outside of boxing, even create one or two, if need be! Make sure that you schedule yourself some time off each week to relax and sleep in, especially if you are not able to stick to a regular sleep pattern around your training sessions. Consider scheduling time when the gym is closed each year- whether for a few weeks or an entire month. This can be important time for family, gym repairs/ cleaning, and even a reprieve for student athletes who really need to be told when to take a break. The ‘break’ could coincide with a part of school break. Enjoy what you do! Remember that teaching the sport is a labor of love, that you are helping many more than you could ever know with your time, effort, and commitment, and that you are loved and appreciated for it!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
