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.

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.” 

– Bill Walsh, American Football

 

“You don’t demand respect, you earn it”

“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
