At Invert City – or Invertcity, if you say quickly – we do much more than tumbling, gymnastics, and physical training; we train the mind and the heart.

From one of our articles about Effective Coaching.

In one of those conversations that failed to move any of us forward, my interlocutor asked, “what about all the athletes I’ve helped?”

My reply, which came in the form of different questions, caused an abrupt end to the conversation. 

What about all the children who came to you for help and didn’t get it? How many of them felt ignored, mistreated, and belittled by you? What of all the children whose love for the sport you stole? 

Indeed, we can’t make everyone happy. There are circumstances beyond our control and our purview as coaches. However, if we can’t improve life circumstances, we should endeavour not to make things worse. 

The formula is simple to understand in terms of numbers without detailed statistics. 

If ten athletes come to you for help and only two achieve the goal set by your definition of success, you need to reconsider that definition and your position as a coach.

And this why I choose to coach there.
