Always a player that played to her strengths, building them to their full capacity, Erika Lawler won 3 national championships and a silver medal in the Olympics for ice hockey. 

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
