Trailer #2: Martin Reader on Life After the Olympics
Martin Reader is an Olympian, speaker for Quality Coaching Collective, and the founder of OFFBALL Athlete. After representing Canada in the 2012 Olympics, Martin changed paths and now uses his knowledge of both mental and physical health to tackle his goals of reducing lifestyle diseases and keeping younger populations active.
Check out this preview of Martin's talk with For the Love of the Game, as seen during the 2018 Youth Sports Summer Summit and in the soon coming LOVE WHAT YOU PLAY podcast. Here, Martin discusses the coaching techniques used by his most memorable Olympic coaches, the athlete’s ability to train the mind, and the lack of experience in team-building skills, healthy living, and handling failure that comes with 70% of children dropping out of sports by the age of 13.
