Coach 'Em Up takes you into the world of coaching at the high school level. You will be challenged to evaluate your approach to coaching and honestly assess your guiding principles.
Are you a coach that measures success by wins and losses? Is success measured by your status among fellow coaches? Or, do you measure success by the development of athletes that come through your program? Our primary focus as coaches is to create a system within our programs that prepares our athletes for life after sports. Coaches either do that or they don't. You will discover the meaning of a Program Coach and Seasonal Coach. The most important question for you right now is which one are you?
The contents in the pages that follow come from experiences and lessons learned throughout a career of coaching. You will be given examples of successes and failures in an effort to provide a model of self-assessment and program evaluation.
Here are some examples of how you will be challenged as a coach:
• Where are you on the coaching spectrum
• Know the roles of each coach in the program
• Become a lifelong learner as a coach
• Build a program around the PFA mantra
• Take responsibility for your decisions
• Understand your drive
What are you waiting for? It's time to begin the journey of discovering the meaning behind your career. It's time to go beyond the "W" and Coach 'Em Up!
Change the way you approach coaching. Change the way you lead our future.
