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
As a coach, the purpose is to prepare the athletes for life on and off the field. It is important to demand the best from myself by being true to oneself. The coaching style would define myself would be a mix of commanding and Co-operative coaching style. As a coach, I expected the athletes know what is expected of them. The goals of the team need to be Mutual with a clear and firmly set. I will allow the Athletes involved in decision-making and goal-setting. The athletes need to be able to make decision when they are playing the game or drill. I will demand good teams with the organization and when making game day decision for formation.
Many coaches in start of careers have begun as a head coach or as an assistant coach. The assistant coach has a unique position within the program and coaching staff. Assistant coach is hired by a head coach to make sure players, equipment and facilities are well-prepared and organized. However, some assistant coach has direct coaching responsibilities, while others only respond to the head coach 's directive. The assistant job given the opportunities to work up the ladder by allowing the gain of knowledge and experience which are necessary to lead a team. While compare and contrast the chapter of 'The Assistant Coach ' from the book ‘Coaching, A Realistic Perspective’ by Michael and Ralph Sabock to the article ‘Head Coaches’ Perceptions on the Roles, Selection, and Development of the Assistant Coach’ by Scott Roswell, Gordan Bloom, and Todd Loughead, the research shows differently, but more similar in technique and needs of coaching position. In the textbook ‘Coaching, A Realistic Perspective’, the chapter of the assistant coach focus on helping coaches create a positive atmosphere to allow the assistants to gain and grow within the program and the team. The chapter opens up with high school sport reflection of assistant coach. The main points of becoming an assistant coach are the head coach at the high school level rarely have a voice of hiring an assistant coach. The head coach 's do not know how and use an assistant coach. (SSabock 2011, p. 129). The textbook showed
Research proved that athletes found their coaches training as well as instruction behavior and their style of coaching did have an impact on individual performance. This was important research for me in understanding how those I coach perceive my leadership and whether or not I am effective as their leader. My teams’ outstanding performance or lack of performance can be a direct link to my type of leadership skills in addition to my training. The primary role of any coach or athletic leader is to help their athletes and improve on their individual performance. “Several sport studies exploring the coach-athlete relationship claim that effective coaching includes basic ingredients such as empathic understanding, honesty, support, liking, acceptance, friendliness, cooperation, caring and respect” (Moen, Hoigaard, & Peters, 2014, p. 76). The challenge for me is finding the balance between being supportive and meeting the individual needs of team members while also enhancing their ability and understanding of the sport. Understanding how to lead and coach various personalities within the team is essential to the team’s
Coaches are not true to themselves for many reasons. These include the goal of winning at all costs, bowing to pressures from parents and other outsiders, or even attempting to mimic the supposed successful methods of other coaches. While many of these influences can result in positive coaching delivery, they have to be taken into the context of the coach 's true experiences, values, opinions and beliefs. It is imperative to appreciate that the coach has a strong influence over the athletes he or she coaches .
The coach will portray that mistakes are not acceptable and the athletes should make as little mistakes as possible. The coach will also show that he/she does not have patience for the athletes that cannot pick up the skills quickly. The coach will condition them if they make mistakes. The coach will have a very loud strong voice, demanding, and intimidating attitude. The coach will enforce fundamentals and skills that the athlete will need to be successful in the sport.
As a basketball coach, I would try to get my team to understand the importance of having an identity and that it is critical to our success as a team. The tool that I would use is to have my players use their childhood nickname or create an alias. This is something that I think would work, when I played high school football we utilized our nicknames to build brotherhood on our team.
The coach will embarrass players in front of the whole team by yelling out what they’re doing wrong and forcing them to correct it on their own. None of the players want to stand out in a bad way to the coach, knowing they will not receive positive advice. In any drill the goal is not to be last. They work as hard as they can to not catch the attention of the coach. When Robert would play football the coaches wouldn’t direct much aggressiveness to him since he was only the kicker and he knew his assignment, but he experienced it among the rest of the team. On his walk from the soccer to the football field, which is on opposite sides of the school, he could hear the coaches screaming at the players the whole way. They demand the best out of each player, and if the player is not willing to give it, they will be punished with some sort of dreadful, physical activity.
This book analyzes the three dimensions of coaching: body, mind, heart. This book analyzes the current condition of high school and college athletics. It then provides clear steps for coaches and leaders to take to help students reach their highest level of success possible. This book was written by Jeff Duke, who
The biggest difference between good coaches and bad coaches is how they influence and handle a their players. A good coach can push a kids out of their comfort zone to make him/her play better. Good coaches also make the players a better person in society and help them gain confidence. A good coach is a fair coach who sees all of his athletes as equals even when some athletes are superior to others. A bad coach does the opposite of what good coaches. They have a negative effect on the children they coach. Bad coaches can make practice a hostile environment pushing the kids to their mental and physical limit. Bad coaches also cut down their players confidence rather than build it
Now this point can go either way; while a coach should be able to motivate their players, the players themselves should have an inside motivation of their own. It all goes back to communication. If a coach is not good at communicating their expectations and such with the players, sometimes the players can become uninterested. Even more drastically, there have been cases where a coach was just so bad, it even caused a player to turn away and completely lack motivation to even continue to play the sport (Bornstein 2). All of the above are mostly qualities that a coach must show on the court, but what about off court?
All the students were required to participate unless they had a valid excuse approved by the coach. In all of the activities that I observed and participated in, the goals were challenging but obtainable. It was obvious that some students were far more or some far less athletic than others and the coaches were able to adjust their respective goal accordingly and did so without drawing attention to them. All the students knew what was expected of them before they came out to the PE area. They would not begin until they were all assembled and quiet. Once they found out which coach they would be with, the students were required to run or walk one lap around the PE field and meet at the predesignated area. It was both cute and amazing watching the

Coaches have a huge impact on the sportsmanship and behavior displayed by their team. According to Churdar (2015), “The coach bears the greatest burden of responsibility for sportsmanship. His influence upon the attitudes and behavior of the players, the student body, and the fans is unequalled.” (p. 2). Coaches have a huge influence on the behavior and attitude of their athletes. According to John Wooden, “Profound responsibilities come with teaching and coaching. You can do so much good-or harm. It’s why I believe that next to parenting, teaching and coaching are the two most important professions in the world” (as cited in Matheny, 2015, p. 99-100). This is a very weighty but true statement. The majority of athletes look to their coaches for guidance not only in athletics, but in life.
Coaches need to be able to convey passion to their players, to inspire them to get the most out of their performance. A successful coach will possess a positive attitude and enthusiasm for the game
