Coach Glen Mulcahy is a dedicated coach and parent determined to fix problems in youth sports
Glen Mulcahy

Glen has a knack for seamlessly backing up key concepts with relevant anecdotes and research. You will find Glen’s ideas on ‘kids in sports’ are not only thought provoking, but enjoyable as he communicates with a great sense of passion and humour.  His lifetime of multi-sport experience and uncanny ability to connect with his audience & draw them into his story makes Glen a passionate down-to-earth man that is driven to prevent youth from dropping out of organized sports.

Glen’s belief in focusing on the fundamentals of the game rather than current game-centric and winning at all costs is both refreshing and inspiring.  Now with two youth athletes of his own, Glen is determined to bring the game back to the kids and inspire youth to stay involved in sports not just during teen years, but throughout adulthood as well.
