Top Coach is a podcast about and for coaches. Whether you’re an aspiring coach, an inexperienced coach, a veteran, or a fan of coaches or athletics in general, Top Coach is for you. Listen to your favorite coaches talk about their profession and their programs. We do our best to stay out of the way and let the coach tell his or her story. It’s quite often from that story where the greatest lessons are learned.
We leave the stuff between the lines to clinic presentations, but instead focus on what it takes to get into and get along in the coaching profession. We focus primarily on amateur coaches, as their mission tends to be a bit different from that of a professional coach.
For the first four years of Top Coach, we focused almost exclusively on baseball coaches. In September of 2017, we expanded our mission to include coaches from all sports. Frankly, it’s more about the journey and the relationships than training regimens, practice plans, or rules. There’s a lot to be learned about impacting lives, whether it’s on a field, court, or track.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Cornbelt Sports is a production company located in Central Illinois, but we’re talking to and about coaches all over the world.
My name is Jack Warren. I am the host of Top Coach and the owner of Cornbelt Sports. I am a former player, coach, umpire, groundskeeper, bus driver, etc. (you know the drill!) with a life long love affair with the game of baseball. My extremely gracious wife, Pam, indulges my current entanglement with the game and is my biggest supporter.
I have been overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of the coaches that I have had the opportunity to interview. They have been extremely candid and are always eager to help out their fellow coaches.
Coaching (and more) background:
- youth baseball – 7 years
- high school baseball – 12 years
- high school basketball (boys and girls) – 4 years
- youth soccer – 1 year
- high school/summer collegiate umpire 6 years
If you haven’t heard enough of me in my weekly podcast, then I’ll be more than happy to come to you to spread the good word of coaching in person. If you’ve got a banquet, clinic, conference, team meeting, promotional event, or fund raiser, I will fill up some dead space with an encouraging, motivational, and (hopefully) entertaining monologue…or some Q & A. Visit my professional services website at JackWWarren.com for more information.
Staff Development and Leadership Seminar
There are plenty of opportunities for you to learn the game between the lines or the one between the ears. I will come to you and help you and your staff with my current staff development and leadership seminar, Ten Second Impact. Communication, organization, motivation, teamwork, career planning, and more will be discussed in formats tailored to the needs of your team or organization. I’ve got anything from a four hour version, all the way up to a two-day retreat. For more information, go to JackWWarren.com.
