Coaching is a very rewarding experience. It sometimes thankless, frustrating “no-win kind of job”. It can create meaningful and delightful and sometimes unexpected experiences. It flexes the muscles and the neurons in the brain to develop a winning strategies. It plays a different role inside the court to create motivations to the team.
Coaching is also one of those jobs where your professional effectiveness is almost always narrowly measured by something that is very often totally out of your control: winning and losing. Another one is that people weigh you as what kind of job your doing or whether you want there evaluation or not.
Being a coach is usually about supporting others to develop and manage their own learning. To be a good coach, therefore, means being able to listen and facilitate objectively without solving peoples’ problems for them. The most important skill in coaching is asking questions framed within a coaching conversation. Beyond this it is important to have relevant competence or experience to support the coaching.
Coaches are essential to the game. They teach players a skills and help develop a healthy, positive attitude, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Coaching is a rewarding experience because you have the opportunity to build a player’s self-esteem, help them learn new skills.
But along the way, frustrations occur. You will find public scrutinizing you and being evaluated according to your performances because you are in a visible position. Fans, parents, friends, team and media all seems at the ready to give you a thumbs up or thumbs down signal. What’s even more frustrating for a coach is that so much of this external judgment comes from individuals who don’t seem to have a clue about you, your players, or what you’re trying to accomplish with the team.
In many ways you could be a wonderful coach. Although sometimes struggles come, but there’s a key where you can push them away:
- When criticism arrived put something positive with it. Just have a positive outlook in life.
- As a coach you also need a fun. make the game fun! That does not mean there is no discipline and strategies you only giving them the self-esteem they wanted to develop a well play.
- Best coaches develop players who believe that they can achieve what they aim for.
- A coach also need to develop a leader which can lead his teammates to a exact path where they could hit the point.
- You also need to strive to develop a versatile and well-rounded players.
Give the players the courage to face their fears inside the arena because “sometimes players get courage and strength to those who believe in them especially in their coaches”- Mr. Baban said.
Coaches are the second father in the court. They may sometimes at the edge of giving up but they make a move and assured every step to secure the winning of the team. Although in some ways coaching may find to be stressful yet amusing. Always remember that its just a game have fun and collect some delightful memories where you can put it in your jar of rewarding experiences.
