Physical Education - The stereotypical coach

The stereotypical coach

The stereotypical view of the coach by the public is displayed in the
cartoon above. And in certain sports or situations, it would be difficult
to convince some people that this is not the type of coach that their clubs
need to bring them success! However, expectations of coaching styles vary
from sport to sport and from age to age and between people of different
personality traits, and possibly between the sexes. In children's sport,
the ranting shouting win at all costs coach has no place. This style is
inappropriate for those who want to "play" for fun, relaxation and
enjoyment.

Even at the elite level, the win at all costs mentality is being
questioned and scholarship holders at the AIS and also many AFL clubs offer
programs to look after athletes, so that they develop skills and abilities
beyond the playing field. The 'burn out factor' is also considered by
modern coaches who need to consider the total emotional and psychological
well being of their charges as well as the traditional concern of
physiological well being.
