Any successful coach knows how to define success for his/her team. For more casual sports club, success is when the team is having fun, but for professional clubs, it is about to win in every game, whenever possible. Even with this simple goal, it is possible for a team to win the World Cup. Some teams play without getting paid, but others are paid many millions of dollars in a single season. Good coach also knows the team and can identify each by the name. It is important because during a training session or during an actual game, penalties can shout at players to give instructions.
Coach should know about each player’s preference, skill and experience with the sports. It is also a good idea to know about personal background of each player. This could allow coaches to help players when necessary. Often, coaches are in the proper position to offer encouragement and assistance to help players maintain their top performance. Successful coaches are also highly organized and they are able to make ideal plans that include practice sessions, meeting and other small details. In small teams, coaches are also managers and they need to deal with paperwork.
As managers, coaches should also have cellphone numbers for every player and other important individuals. Good coaches are highly demanding on team members, but they also acknowledge achievements and can encourage improvements. People need a challenge to move forward and even the best players aren’t on autopilot. With constant praises and instructions, as well some touches here and there, even the weakest team member can experience a sense of accomplishment. A single word of praise may be enough to boost their motivation.
Coaches should help team members with the sense of self worth. However, the entire team should know that it takes more than one people to win a game. Coaches should make a list of the weakest players in the team. Although they may not be bad players, but coaches should be able to help them to escape the trap of mediocrity. All players should be able to achieve top performance and use all their capacity. Success should be both achieved and defined. There’s nothing more gratifying for players to be praised and encouraged by coaches that they respect.
As a coach we may not know what effects we have had on the younger players. We should be able to teach them about performing well in sports. Coaches know how to delegate whenever possible. It can be hard to relinquish some of the responsibility to other players, but we should do this to achieve success. By delegating, we are free to deal with and focus on the game. It may important to look for assistant coaches who can perform well and implement some of our tasks. Some excellent assistant coaches could also make decisions and provide recommendation on proper strategy. A season should be started with a meeting with the whole team, so players know things that are expected from them.
