Undermining a Coach

Imagine the following scenario. As a player rides home from a game with his parents, the father begins his critique of the game. He begins by telling his son that; "Your coach is making a big mistake with the way he’s handling you. Everyone knows that you’re better than Ralph is and should be one of the starting forwards. What is he thinking?"

What ramifications does this behavior have for the player? For the coach?

Nine Things Parents Don't Get

 About Kids and Sports

 

 

What is a Good Coach?

A good coach is someone who:

bullet

knows winning is wonderful but is not the triumph of Sports.

bullet

goes to work early, misses meals, gives away weekends and plays havoc with family schedules so he or she can help out a group of youngsters.

bullet

stays a half hour after practice and more to make sure every one of the players has a safe ride home.

bullet

rarely has a mom or dad say, "Hey, Thanks," but receives a lot of advice on game day.

bullet

makes sure everyone gets to play.

bullet

knows what to do if a player gets hurt.

bullet

teaches young people that winning is not Verdana, but still lies in bed at night staring at the ceiling wondering what he or she might have done differently to have turned a loss into a win.

bullet

can help a child learn to take mistakes in stride.

bullet

sometimes helps a child develop ability and confidence that sometimes did not exist before.

bullet

knows that soccer is great, but that school is the prime endeavor in these children's' lives?

bullet

a youngster will remember a long time after the last game has ended and the season is over.
