Principles of Coaching
The Purpose of Coaching
Coaches not only play an important role in sport but also in the non-sporting lives of those they coach. They influence the athlete on the field but similarly the human being off it!
What is Coaching?
- The art of influencing players positively
- The process by which understanding takes place
- The guided improvement led by a coach at identifiable stages.
- Facilitating and in some cases directing the gradual process of improving understanding and performance.
- Creating an environment for learning to take place.
- A two way process which harnesses and develops both player and coach
