How To Recruit And Retain A Team Of Great Coaches
Delivering your club’s programmes and activities relies on having coaches – these valued individuals are often considered the face of your club/code as they have the ability to attract and retain hundreds of participants and members over time.
After all, if participants have a great coach, they are more likely to continue playing sport; however, if they have a bad coach, they are more likely to drop out.
Good coaching is all about the participant or athlete receiving the support they need to enjoy their sport and fulfil their potential at whatever level that may be. The most successful
clubs place a strong emphasis on coach development. This allows their coaches to constantly sharpen their skills and improve their knowledge, so they can create outstanding atmospheres that keep people coming back for more. Therefore, building up a team of quality coaches is the best thing you can do for your club/code – and as leaders you need to provide great management for your team of coaches to help them work at their best.
