You've read, digested and implemented Jim Thompson's Positive Coaching materials. Now take a Graduate Course.

Bruce Brown's book is filled with wonderful ideas on how to create a sports culture where individuals and teams maximize the personal growth that is possible through athletics.

Personal favorites include sections on the qualities of "Great Athletes" - successfully introduced to players as young as 11 (and, more importantly their parents) - about the choices that athleted make. Similarly "Great Teams" explores the qualities found in the most successful teams. "Positive Conditioning" is an eye-opener (imaging what happens when the winning team in a game at practice does 20 extra push-ups) as well as great team-building exercises such as "Spotlighting". The section on how parents can be helpful participants in the process is also worthwhile.

Run, don't walk (can you do that on-line?) to get this book.
As a student of Coach Browns almost 20 years ago, I can tell you he is the most inspirational coach I have ever met! He changed my life and many around me teaching morals and work ethic. He always made time after school and practice to talk and grow young men and women. He is an amazing coach on and off the field and I am so happy he put his knowledge on paper.

Coach Brown made average athletes great. He took junior high school athletes and created a dynasty at my school. With all average athletes on our team we lead most football games +40 points to 0 going into the second half and punted on first down to keep the score down. :)

Every coach, athlete, leader, parent should read this book!
Easily worth the money, this book is amazing. It poses great questions to coaches about why they coach and what they hope to accomplish, methods to teach character traits, and a wonderful section on using conditioning positively, to name a few sections. The book is geared primarily towards junior high or high school programs, and really has some great ideas for a sports program.
