    3 Dimensional Coaching:                                                  

    Jefferson Parish coaches are participating in this certification program.

    “To provide a framework for coaching that addresses all 3 dimensions of an athlete, built on a foundation of purpose and delivered through workshops and online learning.”

    3D Coaching is not a “program.” At its essence, 3D Coaching is a framework for coaching. Utilizing the framework helps coaches to be intentional about becoming:

    • Fundamentally sound (1st Dimension)
    • Skilled at coaching the mind (2nd Dimension)
    • Focused on developing the heart (3rd Dimension)
