Why I Need A Sports Life Coach
Sports play an incredibly important role in modern American life. As well as boosting the economy by billions every year, sports also encourages community spirit, gives players and spectators a greater sense of purpose, teaches young people fundamental life skills and improves the physical and psychological health of millions who participate.
Some people participate in sports simply for fun. Others view it as a fundamental part of their lives and strive constantly to do better. To achieve great things in sport we must put our bodies and minds through extensive training programs. Every day we must try to be fitter, faster, stronger and sharper than we were yesterday.
The role of the sports coach is hugely varied, but it mainly involves:
a) Teaching rules, techniques and tactics to beginners.
b) Providing an objective view to help teams and individuals enhance performance.
c) Helping those involved in top-level sport deal with enormous pressures faced in a highly competitive environment.
Through expert tutoring, constructive criticism, motivation and on-hand support, sports coaches can help individuals focus their minds, hone their bodies and learn their disciplines inside-out to ensure they have the best possible chance of succeeding.
Most professional sportspeople have coaches to help them train and compete - but you don't have to be a pro to hire a coach. All you need is a desire either to learn a sport, or to enhance your performance in the sport you already play.

Coaching Quotes from the Best Sports Coaches
Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”
The interesting thing about coaching is that you have to trouble the comfortable, and comfort the troubled”
“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all-time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing”
Most people get excited about games, but I’ve got to be excited about practice, because that’s my classroom.”
“Leadership is more about responsibility than ability!”
“Selecting the right person for the right job is the largest part of coaching.”
To be as good as it can be, a team has to buy into what you as the coach are doing. They have to feel you’re a part of them and they’re a part of you.”
The [best] coaches… know that the job is to win… know that they must be decisive, that they must phase people through their organizations, and at the same time they are sensitive to the feelings, loyalties, and emotions that people have toward one another. If you don’t have these feelings, I do not know how you can lead anyone. I have spent many sleepless nights trying to figure out how I was going to phase out certain players for whom I had strong feelings, but that was my job. I wasn’t hired to do anything but win.”
“You don’t demand respect, you earn it”
“The only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
– Vince Lombardi, American Football (Contributed by Mark Cook)
“It’s what you learn, after you know it all, that counts”
“Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit.”
“Coaches have to watch for what they don’t want to see and listen to what they don’t want to hear”
“A winner never whines.”
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Because your character is what you really are, While your reputation is merely what others think you are”
Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching?”
“Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out”
“Failure is never quite as frightening as regret”
– Anonymous (Contributed by Dean Bosnich)
“Let me tell you what winning means…. you’re willing to go longer, work harder, give more than anyone else.”
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
Bobby Knight – Henry David Thoreau
You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward. But both those methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.”
– Homer Rice, Football
“There is another side [to ego] that can wreck a team or an organization. That is being distracted by your own importance. It can come from your insecurity in working with others. It can be the need to draw attention to yourself in the public arena. It can be a feeling that others are a threat to your own territory. These are all negative manifestations of ego, and if you are not alert to them, you get diverted and your work becomes diffused. Ego in these cases makes people insensitive to how they work with others and it ends up interfering with the real goal of any group efforts.”
– Bill Walsh, American Football
