Coaching is also one of those West Coast jobs where your professional effectiveness is almost always narrowly measured by something that is very often totally out of your control: winning and losing.
Sports coaching can be defined as the process of motivating, guiding and training an individual in preparation for any sporting hobby, career, or event.
Sports coaches and performance consultants are increasingly employing questioning as an avenue to nurture growth and development. Opposed to more traditional approaches to teaching where a coach, typically, provided all of the answers and simply instructed athletes where to go and what to do, a more humanistic and contemporary approach is to facilitate learning and development
Have you ever heard of the term coaching? I am sure many people are familiar with sports coaching. There are many sports trainers out there and by trainers I am not referring to a pair of training boots or shoes. These trainers will take charge of either individual or a group or team of athletes and be in charge of training them up so that they would be able to perform their best at a competition. The sports coach or manager as he is sometimes called as he is involved in managing the team as well, will chart the progress of the sportsman or team and make sure they perform satisfactorily till they reach the competition date or even better the finals of the competition after going through the quarter and semi finals.
There are actually certain similarities between a life coach and a sports coach. The sports coach would be involved in many aspects of the sport, including physical and mental player development. Sports coaches train their athletes to become better at the physical components of the game. As the athletes train, they develop greater skill in addition to the physical prowess. Their minds also develop mentally as they are required to make decisions on the field while they are undergoing physical stress and duress, with their bodies being pushed to the limit of physical endurance. While the physical component is not so tough for a client who is going through life coaching, he or she is also being pushed to his or her best, and it would only be through this process that the life coach would plan for his or her client to achieve what he or she has not achieved and aims to achieve. If you are interested in engaging a life coach, a sports coach would already make quite a good candidate.
Anyway I may have digressed a little. The sports coach is assumed to know more about the sport. The word assumed is used here because there is no way to measure how much knowledge a person may have about something. However, most sport coaches should already have previous experience and knowledge on the sport as they were past players or may have already played in the big games or competitions. The main job of the coach is then to transfer as much of his or her own knowledge and experience to the new players such that they can become skilled in the game as well.
