Making a good first impression on a coach (or anyone) is such an important skill to master. Start by practicing your handshake. Here are some tips:

Smile: A big smile always makes a good first impression

Hearty Hand: Firm grip but don’t overdo it

Address: Address them by name if you know it. Or just introduce yourself by name and say “nice to meet you”

Keep Eye Contact: Maintain good eye contact. Try not to look down or away. Smile with your eyes

Enthusiasm Wins: Good energy and excitement to meet them.
