Chapter 6 talks about communicating with your athletes. This is important because becoming a coach you must understand yourself and your student athletes on an emotional level. It’s like Coach Sanchez said “Players do not care how much you know until they know how much you care”. In this chapter it talks about different personality coaches can be. I think coaches should avoid using the judge method in coaching. I think this coaching method is the worst. For one puts blame on the athletes. On as a coach must take blame for the team, and not put them down to make them know that you have their back. A good coach must learn how to listen to their player so they can get some feedback and constructive cridisium on how they are conducting their class.
You think a coach would be someone who would mentor you, help you be the best you, and help you excel in the sport that you love. In the document Happy Valley that was not the case. Happy Valley is a documentary that was directed by Amir Bar-Lev in 2014; giving us the full details on Penn States Coach Jerry Sandusky when he was prosecuted for sexually abusing young kids over a long period of time leading up to his trial in 2011. Happy Valley is such a great documentary because throughout the movie it shows Ethos, Logos, Pathos, and Kairos that gets the views to feel the emotion and be able to see the facts. The thing this documentary had was Kairos.
They become a father, mentor, trainer, teacher etc. Coaches take on more roles. I have witnessed the methods of John Wooden from a previous coach. These methods build a lot of team work and make the athletes play harder. John Wooden was a great example of how well planned out a great coach could be.
It is commonly believed that coaches are around to teach and help individuals become better in everything they do. They are there to help learn about a sport or activity, build character, and be competitive. The coaches I had seemed to have been the opposite. Coach Savery and Coach Zaugg are former basketball coaches I have had; neither of them seemed basketball smart, they were both assholes in their own way, and neither of them acted like they cared about winning a game.
Coaching is teaching and as coaches our goal is to impart self-assurance, motivation and rational strength in our athletes (quote book). At Clear Choice Coaching we concentrate on coaching soccer, basketball, tennis and football, we want to be able to provide all of our clients we encounter the ability to thrive. We have followed many elite programs throughout the United States and we found a common theme and it was no matter the sport, coaches use trial and error until they find trial and success ( quote book). This experimental stage coach’s use is what we call the intellectual part of coaching our sports. We see the need for our coaches to have an understanding of the significance of leadership and being able to instruct our athletes to becoming effective performers and dealing with them individually, helping each one to develop and maintain a winning mentality.
Another role of a coach is a role model. A person who is a model in a particular behavioural or social role (this instance the coach) for another person to be with. The way you conduct yourself whilst in the presence of the athletes provides an example of how they should behave, especially with young children as they will look up to the coach. What sort of example should we be providing to someone else's children? This affects a teams or individuals performance because what the coach is doing the individual may copy so it is important that the coach is on form
Without the great quality and knowledge of the coach, the team wouldn’t be successful. “Coaching Philosophy is a set of values, governing principles and beliefs, which determine why you do what you do and how you behave in the context of your coaching role. You must ask yourself the question, why do I coach?” (A Coaching Philosophy). Most important part of building a coaching philosophy is knowing what your motives are.
4.1 “just do it”. I spend majority of my time just thinking about how I am going to get the assignment done. By the time I start the assignment it feels like I been working on it forever, when in reality I just started. When am given an assignment I need to work on it as soon as I find free time. “to eat an elephant, first cut it into same pieces”.
In the athletic world, there are many different types of coaches. There are the coaches who think they know everything, the coaches who know what they are doing but do not care, and the coaches that actually care and want to succeed. First, the coaches that think they know what they are doing. These types of coaches act like they know the game, but they really do not.
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
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.
A coach’s biggest job is to teach kids to play team sports. As a Head coach you never ever want to lose the trust and faith of your players. If the players don’t believe you will lead them to victory then they won’t want to play for you. Another huge responsibility as a head coach is teaching your players to do
Coaches should examine their experiences, by looking for meaning when asking ‘why’ questions (Denison, 2007). This experience allowed me to develop and see the importance of having interpersonal skills which deals with things, such as, providing a safe environment for the client, treating the client as an equal in the coaching process, allowing them to pick their own tempo for accomplishment of desired goals, during sessions remain neutral, and use positive thought, words and action during the relationship (Mitchell, J., July 27,

SOAR Essay “ 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.
The Big Five Personality Traits are divided into five broad characteristics, which is basically used to describe the variations of human personality.
