Introduction

Sports coaching Task 1 The role of a coach is to assist athletes to develop their full potential within their sport. The coach is responsible for taking the training sessions also they should analyze their athlete's performances; they should teach the relevant skills provide encouragement. They are also responsible for the guidance of the athlete/group in their chosen sport. Therefore the role of the coach will be varied, from instructor, assessor, friend, mentor, facilitator, demonstrator, adviser, supporter, fact finder, motivator, organizer, planner and the Fountain of all Knowledge. The role of a sports coach is to create the right conditions for learning to happen and to also find ways to motivate the athletes. Most athletes are already highly motivated and therefore the task is to maintain that motivation and make the training sessions exciting and enthusiastic.

Also they use different styles David uses part whole and uses democratic because at that age you don't need to be strict because they will listen were as children need to have the command style.

Conclusion

David Encourage he encourages the team but also every manager can also discourage them when their on the playing pitch David is very calm unlike Alex but he can loose his temper with the team when they don't listen this is when they will become discouraged when he gets mad with them. Also I think that as a coach they should train with the team also it will increase the fitness levels of the coach bit also increase friendship between players and managers. He also must be very organised to run the team and do all the paper work and the training sheets. I think both managers can improve by asking the team more what they would like and also by keeping calm and letting the players do their job on the pitch. Also rather than shouting they should encourage they more they shout at the players the less players in the future will want to join the squad because they will find it hard to concentrate whilst be shouted at during a game. They should just think how the players feel before they start shouting. ...read more.
