Personal Coaching

Personal Coaching 

 

Today’s coach must develop his/her own system for the sport program they coach. This system will serve as the road map for both the coaching staff and the athletes. A coach’s system can incorporate how he/she organizes the staff, team, or program to the style of play a team will display.

Case Assignment

Your task for the Module 4 Case: Using information from the assigned readings and your own research, write a 2½ – 3 page paper that discusses the three most important points a head coach should consider when organizing a staff, team, and program.

Please list these points in order of importance (i.e., the first one listed being the most important) and justify your rationale with resources and examples.
