Even professional coaches like Andrew McFadden, current assistant coach at the Canberra Raiders, former head coach at the New Zealand Warriors, and 100-game NRL first grade player can be THAT parent.

With more than a decade of full-time coaching experience, Andrew shares his philosophy on athletes taking ownership, following what he reflects on as a bitter-sweet playing career, where he struggled to reach his full potential in the high-pressure environment of professional rugby league.

In this episode, Andrew gives us some great insight into how to achieve this for both individual and team athletes — and what’s the 3-6-1 principle?
