Sports Coaching Logbook Assignment 1 Roles and Responsibilities. P1 + M1 Identify the 6 Roles of a coach Innovator Friend Manager Trainer Role Model Educator Describe 4 of the above Roles and relate them each to different 3 sports. P1 Roles Sport 1 Sport 2 Sport 3 Manager In football your game plan backfires when your team goes down a goal, you make a bold decision and change things around to succeed, as Rafa Benitez did in the 3-3 thriller against AC Milan in 2005. In basketball you have an important game tomorrow and your players are looking tired, you put the teams best interests first and end training early so the players can rest up and be fresh. In Tennis you notice your player is losing a lot of points by rushing to the net too quickly so you talk with him and tell him to work on his net play. Friend In Rugby the team are demoralised and are not socialising well together so you organise a paint balling trip to remedy the situation. Your team have a good time, socialise and feel closer as a group. In football you notice a player is playing bad and doesn't look happy in training, you take him aside at the end of the session and talk to him about what's going on with him outside the game. In athletics your runner has a final coming up and he/she is nervous about it and worried about preparation, you share with him some experiences of important races/events you have taken part in before to help him feel better. Trainer In football you have a talented player that doesn't understand any of your verbal instructions, u notice this and make sure you show him a demo every time you teach him something. ...read more.


However if the technique is right the players can practise and improve maximising their own potential. The educator must not only educate the players on the playing field, but off it as well, for example in football the coach has an U16's team that have just finished a match. They are in the dressing room and are talking about going out to celebrate by getting drunk and getting in fights, the coach stops them and tells them that its not cool and improvises by teaching them about other thing they can do to celebrate. The educator role is different to the others because its not just about the matters on the playing field or involved in the sport, its about lifestyle and living standards too. Identify the 5 Responsibilities of a sports coach. Venue Equipment Players Needs Parents Needs Health and Safety Describe 4 of the above Responsibilities and relate them each to different 3 sports. P1 Responsibilities Sport 1 Sport 2 Sport 3 Venue In football the venue isn't where the map said it was, a local says its across the main road so take safety precautions every session to make sure all the kids get across safely. In basketball the hall you hired out is half the size as you thought it was so you make changes to your course arrangements to change the venue to a near-by facility. In rugby your venue has been double booked, you have to try an find another venue so you ring round all the possible local venues. Health and Safety In rugby your filling in for a sick colleague, you turn up 15 minutes earlier than usual to carry out a quick risk assessment to make sure there are no dangers. ...read more.


Explain the 3 Skills using examples from different sports. M2 Skills Explanation Organisation As a skill the coaches organisation is important because if a coaches organisation is not correct the session will not run smoothly. For example, in football a coach doesn't have a session plan prepared and he turns up and has them playing a match for an hour they could be vulnerable to injury and the session may get tedious and boring, and they players may lose faith in the coaches ability. Analysing As a coach the skill analysing is important for improving players and maximising their potential, a coaches analysing must be correct to work on players strengths and weaknesses, for example in basketball a players driving to the basket is excellent and he gets fouled a lot doing it, however he is poor at free throws. If the coach picks up on this he can work on the players weakness and maximise his potential. Analysing is very different to organisation as analysing is whilst watching the game and organising is before the game. Communication As a coach the skill communication is important for training players efficiently, effectively maximising their potential, and getting the information across to the participants all together . For example if a coach is telling the kids how to do a technique verbally, and not all of the kids seem to understand it, the coach must then use a different form of communication to transfer the knowledge to the kids. If a coach does this effectively he will be successful in getting information across. Communication is similar to health and safety in the way that it applies to every aspect of coaching, but communication is harder to master as it takes charisma and knowledge to carry out correctly. ...read more.
