Sports management is a really broad field, therefore I decided to focus on my minor and one of my major interests of this field: coaching. In this paper I will be explaining my personal five building blocks that make up a well-rounded coaching philosophy and coach. Those blocks are; leadership, organization, attitude, respect, and resiliency. Each of these five aspects are equally important and balance each other out. Leadership, the action of leading a group of athletes towards a goal. Organization, being able to organize a team and have a plan in order to help the team achieve goals. Attitude, it is very important for a coach to have a winning and positive attitude that is contagious to the players. Respect, there has to be a good
A team without this support will soon start to feel lost in regards to targets, objectives and direction. Issues can arise in so many different forms if a team is left to its own devises. Effective team communication can pacify most of these issues, whether it is failure to meet targets or issues of conflict, by taking the time to actively listen to team members and then working together to find a solution you not only prevent any issues building and eventually becoming a bigger problem, but also stop them affecting team performance and motivation. This will make for a healthy team dynamic and team members that feel they are valued and appreciated within the

Team members need to know that problems encountered can also be used as a teaching tool and their input is , damages for mistakes that have been made. Everyone makes mistake and staff need to feel that they won’t be punished, but if they are held accountable that the discipline be done quickly so they are not walking around with a feeling of impending doom. All staff at some point will have corrective action, but it needs to be fair and a teaching plan must be done.

My team has a number of strengths. First of all, it is the flexibility of majority of team members, thereby creating an effective team. The team members, although they come from different units, they are capable of accommodating each other’s views resulting in a strong team.
Coach P.’s training program should have focused more on psychological variables and group processes earlier in the season. Instead, training was focused on improving individual team member performance. The Varsity team comprised of the eight top individual performers (Snook & Polzer, 2004).
