According to Performance Coaching International (PCI, 2012) the concept of coaching has been in practice for as long as the human race has been in existence. In ancient Greece and Rome, skills such as running, archery, horse riding and gladiatorial skills were all extensively trained with a view of improving (PCI, 2012). Like many coaches today, ancient Greek coaches were former athletes themselves and helped the competitors of their day achieve personal excellence (Levinson & Christensen, 1996). It is often said that behind every good sports performer is a good coach. Barker, et al. (2007) states that this is true with many great coaches today, who have admitted that they would not have been as successful if they did not have a good coach to help mentor and develop them.
In this article, they analyze the promotions and firings of NCAA Division 1 college coaches for both basketball and football. The objective is to research and to assess whether these coaches are compensated for the academic performance of their players thru promotion and or retention decisions. In this article, we discover that according to statistics, the better the player performs academically, the likelihood that the coach is fired is slim to none. However, there was no evidence that the positive academic performance led to a promotion for the coach either. This gives valuable information to consider while writing regarding how successful I will be as a coach even if my players are academic scholars or
Physical- One way physical needs were met was through the access of water which created a plentiful source of low cost refreshment throughout the day. All children had a water bottle which was kept in the classroom. Children were given ready access to water throughout the day. Water provision: encouraged good health and wellbeing among the children, reduced tiredness, irritability and distraction from thirst, had a positive effect on children’s concentration throughout the day and raised awareness of the importance of adequate fluid intake and healthy eating as part of a healthy and active life.
Individuals’ must decide what philosophy or principles they will stand by throughout the course of life. Why? Well, we have all heard the saying, “a man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.” Our principles are the beliefs that shapes our way of thinking and our way of doing. A philosophy will help people know what lines they are willing to cross and the ones that they will not. Therefore, whenever a coach develops his or her philosophy they have to think of the prospective coach that you want to be known as, and more importantly what they want to be known for. Within life and coaching, philosophies are developed through many aspects such as character, experience and the help of more seasoned individuals in that particular sport or
The Kansas City Chiefs were founded in 1960 by the Lamar Hunt Family. The Chiefs were originally the Dallas Texans and were a part of the American Football League (AFL). The Texans won the AFL Champion in 1962 and shortly after that they were relocated to Kansas City, Missouri and were renamed to the Kansas City Chiefs. After they won the AFL championship for the second time in 1966, they merged into the National Football League (NFL). They then became a part of the American Football Conference (AFC) West division which had just been formed in 1960. Other teams such as the Broncos, Raiders and Chargers were a part of the AFC West division.
Coaches can sometimes take on different roles. These roles are not always limited to the simple title as a coach. It is the job of the coach to wear many different hats. These are the times where the coach has to really get to know their players. The way these players play with each other will be a sure sign of the type of coach that coached. As players began to find themselves they begin to understand the teachings of their coach.
There are two to four million coaches throughout the United States. Less than 20% of these coaches have received any type of training (Anderson, 2012). Most youth sports coaches around America have parents as the coach of the team. This can be a problem due to the favoring of playing time and a lack of training as well. Athletes need to be trained and coached by individuals who are going to make them better both on and off the court. This is where the training of coaches comes into play. From a parents perspective the individual that is coaching their kid is very critical to the process. For example, one in every four coaches is considered less than good as seen by parents of the athlete (Aleshire, 2003). In an observational and interview
This essay will first answer what is skill theme approach? It is a model that describes both content of physical education (what to teach) and pedagogy of physical education (how to teach) (Graham, Holt/Hale, & Parker, 2010). In skill theme approach teacher is the instructional leader. Teacher uses shaping process to achieve desired skill movement patterns. Teachers structures the learning, give detailed and repeated instructions, ask large number of questions. Desired performance outcome is modelled. This than proceeds to teacher directed learning activities coupled with high rates of positive and corrective feedback (Metzler, 2011). Skill theme is learned through practice, timely feedback and through
Reflection is a necessary component in learning to regulate opinion, feelings, and actions. Reflection links experience and knowledge by providing an opportunity to explore areas of concern in a critical way and to make adjustments based on these reflections (Knowles Z., Tyler G., 2006). I will be using the Gibbs G (1988) Learning by Doing: A guide to teaching and learning methods (Davies S., 2012).
Kohn argues that using ‘lures for learning’ can result in students experiencing anxiety (1993, p.8). Also in special education settings students are possibly subjected to ‘Skinnerian manipulation’ (1993, p. 8). This highlights the role of criticality in classroom management and the importance of teasing out underlying assumptions through reflection (Brookfield, 1995). It raises ethical awareness to the behaviourist choices we make as teachers as we ought to recognise that we are not looking to alter the personality of young students through behaviourist techniques, but rather reduce anti-social behaviours. Contrary to this, in Kohn’s view, behaviourist teaching is seen as a ‘controlling’ technique and as a way to increase learning performance. In this instance, however, it is a management technique that contributes to the implementation of other theories such as social-constructivism and cognitivism, discussed further

“ A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has to see what you don't want to see, so you can be who you always known you could be.” Tom Landry, one of the greatest football coaches of all time, said this is what it takes to be a coach. A research done on Australian coaches shows that “Coaching has the potential to play a significant role in shaping an individual and community’s identity, culture, and knowledge.” Coaches play a very effective role not only on kids but on adults as well. You can go to coaching for anything you need help with in life.
