As a coach, an unexperienced trainee or experienced head coach for years, it is important to keep the individuals you coach interested and keep a certain excitement for them in every session you deliver. One way to assess this dilemma if you want is by using reflective practice and engaging with your athletes through this. Reflective practice is within the world of sport becoming more and more recognized as a tool and used to boost improvement and efficiency for coaches, sport psychology practitioners and other personalities within any sporting organisation (Huntley and Kentzer, 2013). Research (Knowles, Katz and Gilborune, 2012); Neil, Cropley, Wilson and Faull, 2013) suggests reflective practice and critical reflection used in the correct
It clearly demonstrates how the coach views him/herself with regard to the athletes. There is great value in discussing their philosophy with their pupils, as it gives the boxers the chance to understand what is expected of them, thus giving them a clear insight into the coach as both a person and a leadership figure. It should be done regularly as a coaching philosophy may change and adapt at any stage. Cross and Lyle (2002). In an ideal situation, both coach and boxer would develop a symbiotic relationship.

These sections are Prep, Care, Help and Ultimate Goal. Each one of these steps build up to get to the teams ultimate goal which is healing relationship, which is stronger than medicine. How I plan to use it: I will use John Wooden’s Pyramid of success a lot in my paper because of the credibility that John Wooden has. His pyramid can be related to Bruce Bochy style of coaching that he uses. Bochy has been known for his great communication and that is what John Wooden put a lot of emphasis was communication and the relationship he had with his player which was shown with all of the NCAA titles that he won.
Communication is a central component of coaching and is “the act of expressing ideas, information, knowledge and feelings, as well as understanding what is expressed by others”. (reference) Chhikara (2013) suggests that “the success of any coach at every level of competition, is determined by his or her ability to effectively communicate with their athlete(s)”. Communication is essential for coaches to teach new skills, correct faults or solve problems, which is why it is important for coaches to have effective communication skills. Communication can be both verbal and non-verbal; Coaches communicate many of their messages through their voice, actions, facial expressions and body language. (think you are missing a word or reference here) States that verbal communication is one of the most effective means of communication between an athlete and coach and is the main method which coaches use.
4. Chapter Four Results - 6147 4.1 Introduction This chapter presents the findings that are most relevant to the four research questions about the journey of an internal coach about: 1. What are the views of the coaches (both trainee and established) views and expectations of the role of the internal coach? 2. What are the lived experiences of the coaches (both trainee and established) as they trained to become a coach?
Basic knowledge would be required for youth sports, but a detailed knowledge base is essential for seniors and professional sports. “This knowledge includes an in-depth understanding of the skills, tactics and strategies required for effective training, practices and game-day decisions” (J H. , 2013). In the book “The Successful Coach: Guidelines for Coaching Practice”, it states that “effective and successful coaches have an open and inquiring mind set, and that they never assume that they know everything about their sport or coaching” (1996). The qualities of inquisitiveness and thoughtfulness combined with a willingness to challenge traditional views are important. However, Crisfield states that “there is no substitute for having a firm knowledge of the sport, performers, factors that influence performance and the factors that influence the effectiveness of coaching”,
Do you ever wonder if you can seek help with that? Merriam Webster defines psychology as “the study of mind and behavior in relation to a particular field of knowledge or activity.” (Merriam Webster) Sports psychologists main focal point in the line of work is to improve and help an individual to excel in sports. A mindset is the core of all studies and actions. Sport psychologists discover the needs and desires of athletes, for which they interpret it and find a solution. In most cases, athletes need motivation and help, to overcome psychological issues, whether they are personal or limiting in their vocation.
Another important study on motivational climate is the study of Duda, et al (2003) which examined the relationship of the two achievement goal orientations in physical education to : (1) achievement-related beliefs (i.e. beliefs about the causes of success in and the purpose of PE, beliefs about the nature of physical ability), (2) affective responses such as enjoyment, anxiety, (3) self determination (student level of intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation and amotivation) (4) behavioral strategies and skill development, and (5) the level of physical activity engagement. In the first correlation study, it revealed that ego-orientation was predicted by the fixed belief that sport ability is a gift, and in contrast, task orientation was predicted by the incremental belief that sport ability is the product of learning. In affective response correlation, consistent in the achievement goal literature centered on the physical domain is the association between task orientation and positive affect. Greater enjoyment was reported by those who were high in task orientation and low in ego
Sports and physical activities generally are a major part of my life, and experience of various types of work has helped me to realise that this is where I would like to make my career, I’ve had an interest in coaching from watching and playing under youth team coaches and also first team coaches such as Coventry united Fc ,Coventry city Fc ,Chasetown fc, Luton town academy Fc and Strachan academy Fc I’ve been highly inspired by the work of the coach and staff at these teams, it helped me understand how coaches expectations influence an athlete’s success, at the beginning of any season, coaches are trying to get an idea of how each athlete can help the team succeed. They observe the number of factors, which seem to fall within 3 categories: personal cues, performance information and psychological characteristics. The experience also helped me to realise that coaches are influential life teachers, This kind of coach doesn’t just teach the skills, Tactics , techniques and strategy within the narrow confines of the sport. Instead they look for opportunities where the more important life lessons can be conducted such as mastering hardship, handling and rebounding from failures and setbacks, trusting your teammates, sacrificing individual needs to and for the benefit of the group also emotionally dealing with winning and losing, great sportsmanship, fair play, honesty and integrity and more. The reason for why I would like to take part in this course is because I believe
