You are a coach and leader in our community
Coaches are often viewed as positive role models and mentors for their players, working behind the scenes to bring teams to victory, supporting them in their defeat and sharing in the joy of participating.
Good coaching goes beyond physical skills training; it involves the development of life skills, confidence, resilience and social participation.
Coaching has the potential to play a significant role in shaping an individual and community’s identity, culture, and knowledge.
We want our coaches to embrace their leadership role and used it to engage in broader forms of social and community development. Off the field, coaches should also actively promote positive messages about healthy living, social responsibility and education.
As a leader and coach, you embrace your role and are dedicated to continuously learning and improving your skill sets. Having a growth mindset is critical to be a successful coach.
You are a good communicator
Part of being a successful coach is being a good communicator. Communication is key to building trust, solid relationships and increasing the satisfaction of your role as a coach. Communication is also incredibly important for building strong teams and relationships with your players, your parents, and your peers.
