Notes and quotes

Rather than rehashing Vern’s decades of experience in sport, this episode focuses more on the environment and culture that he first learned about coaching in. That environment shaped his career, and it can be helpful to take a look back on both the positive and negative experiences. In addition, we look forward towards the next generation of coaches and the decades to come.
