Development

First and foremost, a good coach cares about his or her players and wants to get the best out of them. A coach must have the motivation and patience to teach each player the fundamentals of the game, whilst supporting their emotional well-being within the team. When you teach fundamentals, you should emphasize perfection. Repetition should occur constantly until it is done instinctively within a game situation. An effective coach is generally seen as a ‘student of the game’; one that develops their craft on an ongoing basis through observation of games and expert coaches, attending coaching courses and research into current best practice. The club also recognises that each coach will have their own unique philosophy, and we support this development.
