Communication is important not only with those being coached but also those associated with the athlete i.e. parents, ground staff, facility managers, club officials, volunteer staff, other coaches etc. The effective coach lets others around them know what is going on, so that the aims of the organisation, whether it be the AIS or the local netball club, can be coordinated to achieve common goals. Most importantly the communication between the coach and the athlete is critical. Remember coaching can be very different and may involve a number of different situations. These situations could involve a one on one situation, with the coach and athlete in an individual sport, or may involve a large group who meet a couple of times a week like a local soccer team, or may involve an elite coach working with a large squad and having the assistance of specialised skills coaches like an AFL coach.

Good coaches are also able to praise athletes for their efforts.
