In the time of COVID parents are being asked to do many things that we haven't done before. Home schooling and home coaching are now two more things on our already full plates. This week Kevin Dessart, former head of coaching for USA Cycling and the current Head Coach of University of Colorado Women's Hockey, gives some insight on what makes a great coach and what the ideal parent role is for their developing athlete.

We take that a step further as we talk about the new role for parents amid COVID, Home Coaching. How do balance being a parent, but also helping kids get their sports work done while in lockdown?
