Great to be featured in the Vocativ! Check out the story ‘The Guru’ written by Joe Lemire “more and more pro athletes are turning to independent skills coaches for guidance and the results are starting to show” Our featured coaches in this article are Hall of Famers Adam Oates and Bryan Trottier, NHL all star Theo Fleury, and Ron Johnson. They’re changing skills coaching and how it’s applied in hockey and in sports forever.
Kobe Bryant had a video coach when he was playing for The Los Angeles Lakers, that he called Yoda. They would watch every game from start to finish. John Mcenroe (former Tennis champion) is now tutoring Milos Ronic on the grass court side of his game. Idan Raven works with Steph Curry & Lebron James on shooting and basketball skills. Even 2x Super Bowl Champion: Peyton Manning is getting involved with private coaching in football with Quarterback Tanahill for the Miami Dolphins.
“It allows people from all over to get this information,” Oates said. “You know what, I think it’s going to make coaching better.” My Pro Hero presents one platform that delivers direct access to these skill development coaches.
