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
When building a successful Division I collegiate basketball program, there are many facets that need to be developed. These facets can include, concise communication, team policies and procedures, encouraging a strong work ethic, character development, and numerous other parts of a team environment. Being dedicated to the cause is imperative to develop belief in the system from the players and coaching staff. The team has to have buy-in to themselves and each other as to the purpose of the program. Once everyone has committed themselves
As coaches, we want our programs to be the best and to always be remembered for something great. We often ask ourselves, what are the keys to success? Is it communication, getting along with everyone, hiring those that share the same philosophy, or respect within the program. It takes everything possible that a coach can give and more, to make a program successful.
To be a college coach you have to be very dedicated and love the sport you are coaching. Being a college coach is very time consuming and a very hard job to land in the sports world. The competition that one faces when trying to get into the job field is fierce. This means that the job as a coach in the collegiate athletic career field is limited to a small percentage of the people that end up applying. These people need to be able to fulfill a variety of duties for their universities, and because of this it is important that anyone who is thinking of applying knows the difficulty that comes with the job (Greenwald, 2010).
“At practice, Coach was always shouting the word Dig!” (Ehrmann 2011, pg. 53)What coach doesn’t ask for their players to work harder, dig deeper, or strive? We all do. “But to Coach it always meant: Dignity, Integrity, and Grace.” (Ehrmann 2011, pg. 53). Joe Ehrmann’s book InSideOut Coaching is an amazing look into why coaches coach. My mind was blown. My book looks like a firework display of highlights, underlines, and notes. There are so many ideas in this short book my head swam. The book really made me question the what, why, and how I am coaching. His ideas and opinions are a game changer for me. I can relate to Parade Magazine’s assessment; Joe Ehrmann is “The most important coach in America.” upon completing the book. For me the D.I.G.
Establish objectives together: Define performance objectives with the team and make sure that all team members understand the objectives and what actions will need to be taken to achieve them.
I have recently been provided with the opportunity to become the head basketball coach of Winner University. Winner University is an institution that competes at the division one level of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The program is known for making it to the Final Four and winning the national championship for college basketball, this particular program is also known for producing NBA standouts. Winner University is a dynasty and is known for nothing but greatness in the basketball world. The particular problem that I am facing is that I am knew to this program and I want to incorporate my own coaching style and beliefs into the program, while continuing to upheld the tradition of winning here at Winner University. My goals
Do not forget the parents! Keep them informed and involved. Punctuality is imperative. It's hard to perform in the event the children are not there. Inquire further for help with practice, but be sure they realize their aid will not make them one among the team coaches. Children are extremely significantly conscious of their parents' presence in a game. Therefore it is a magnificent idea to ask Dad and Mom to maintain their emotions in check rather than yell at officials. As grownups, you and they are to be great role models. I've had to remind a few dads that they have there been to guide their children, perhaps not behave like
To ensure that my program evaluation is objective, credible and fair I would employ internal and external counselors or advisors as well as align my program evaluation with the standards and practices of the professional body of evaluators. These “advisors “may or may not include the program stakeholders, but would not negate the formal process of collaborating with key stakeholders. Rather, the purpose of my advisor team is to see and hear things I missed.
My product is a survey or a checklist of athletic coaches telling me specific their qualities what it takes to become a perfect athletic coach. It's relevance to answering the question is that every coach has their own coaching style and they will be able to tell me the leadership qualities it takes to become a perfect athletic coach in their opinion. I will also make a short video about the coaches I interview to enhance my product or survey. This video will showcase the coaches specific qualities they choice about being a perfect athletic coach parts of multiple games. If the coaches win games and get their coaching style across in the majority of games there qualities that they chose are successful for being a perfect athletic coach for
I enjoyed playing high school and college basketball, however after suffering from a life changing permanent injury I couldn’t continue being an active player on my team. Nonetheless, I did not want to allow this injury to ruin my passion for the sport. Consequently, I chose to invest lots of hours into learning the coaching and recruiting characteristics of the sport. Reading Bruce Tuckman’s iconic description of the stages of group development has really made it easy for me to understand my experience during the time I attended a coaching basketball camp with nine other prospective upcoming basketball coaches like myself.
I’m from a town in which the basketball program is not known for winning. Growing up going through a program like that nearly killed my love for the game. My main career goal is to become a coach and return back to my hometown. I want to reshape the entire program into a winning program. I want to create a legacy in my hometown. I’ve also seen so many girls who grew up playing the game quit once they went through its current program. Their love of the game was destroyed, and seeing that happen to so many people nearly destroyed me. I want to return and fix the program so the younger generations have something to strive
The program that this student has designed and will test will not be in a “corporate” type building, it will be conducted within a classroom inside of a public school. This program will be centered on the idea in which both teachers and school administrators come together in helping to truly create a better future through their students, our future. In this classroom volunteers, teachers and therapists will meet to discuss the performance of children in that school. These volunteers would also help collect food and distribute this food to the children in need and their families. This classroom would be the base for educating both teachers and school administrators about healthy boundary crossings, such as when is it appropriate
