What Great Coaches Do
Me as a first year as an assistant varsity high school coach in 1986
Some youth coaches I've met feel insecure about their abilities because they never played in high school or college. Great coaches can learn the game in different ways other than as starters on a team. You can become a student of the game reading, listening, and watching how to teach the fundamentals of the game. Great coaches work hard at learning how to teach the game to the age group they are working with. Great coaches run organized practices, show up early to set up the practice field, and ask questions when they you don't know something. I've played with allot of great players over my career and I've been coached by allot of differed folks too. Being a great player doesn't mean you will be a great coach. Great coaches both love the game and love teaching.
