When you have such a storied athletic career, what coaches and lessons stand out?
In this episode of the On the Whistle podcast, I sat across the mic from Erika Lawler who now lives, works, and plays hockey in Brooklyn. We talked about her career on the rink and what she values in a coach.
Erika and I discussed:
- Transitioning from a parent-coach to a coach
- The qualities of a great coach at all levels
- What it feels like to win a silver medal in the Olympics
