To Coach OR Not To Coach!
“Nobody would step up and volunteer, so finally I said I would do it. The parents were thrilled when I said I would do it and now those same parents are unhappy with the way I’m handling the team. I told them I hadn’t coached before and now it seems like everyone has an opinion about what I’m doing wrong.”
Sound familiar? Why should you coach? For many reasons!
To truly enjoy coaching at any level you need to expand on your reasons for coaching to include items that provide a personal sense of happiness and reward. Put aside all of the community service reasons and think about aspects of coaching that can give you a feeling of satisfaction and personal joy. This way you will find greater motivation to be the best coach you can without worrying about negative criticism.
1. Enjoy being part of a team - The interaction with the players that takes place on the field is something that can’t be duplicated when you sit in the stands.
2. Enjoy teaching youth - It’s a thrill to see the happiness that occurs when a player has learned something new and is able to perform that skill..
3. Enjoy acting like a kid - Kids don’t understand the concept of working or practicing hard, nor should they be expected to. What they do understand is the concept of playing hard and having fun, so have fun with them....Act like a kid, they love it and respond to it!!!
4. Coaching is a challenge - Love the challenge of trying to continually improve and get better. For both players and coaches that concept is really one of the main lessons that sports can teach us. The added bonus is it can be used in every part of your life.
5. Spending time with the kids - saved this for last, but it’s really first on the list. Being out on the field with the kids is an awesome opportunity to spend quality time that they will hopefully always remember.
It’s important to realize that to be good at coaching you have to
be doing it for reasons other than “they needed someone”. Almost anyone can become a very good youth coach, but it’s like anything else you’re good at, it takes a desire to become good at it. Put aside your fears of coaching by realizing that we ask our kids to put aside their fears every time they step up to the plate, take a spot in the field or pitch their first pitch. Fear should never become an obstacle.
So, don't be afraid to check that volunteer coach box on your registration form this season. You might just end up with a new rewarding addiction!!!
