Physical Education - The role of the coach in improving performance
The role of the coach in improving performance
The coach and the effectiveness of their coaching is a factor that affects
performance. There are many elements to being a good coach:
* highly organised
* knowledgeable in all areas of the sport
* able to analyse performance (strengths and weaknesses)
* able to pass on skills with a variety of teaching techniques
* sensitive to the athlete's needs (set goals)
* excellent communicator
* excellent interpersonal skills
* good observer
The prime quality of a good coach is the desire and skill to help others
to achieve their goals and derive satisfaction from their chosen activity.
This may be anywhere along the continuum of skill from beginner, novice,
social weekend player, club player, district representative, young talented
regional representative, state league or state representative right through
to an elite athlete at Olympic or world class level.
