Assistant Coaches

working togetherIf you are fortunate enough to have other adults volunteer to assist you with the team, then look for assistance with team management/administration and coaching.

The assistant coach(es) does not necessarily need to have experience as a player or coach to be helpful to you.  Let the parents, your volunteer base, know this and they’ll then be more likely to assist you.

An assistant coach could simply help with supervision, training and game organization, first aid, etc. Some adults will be more comfortable starting with these responsibilities and then ease themselves into helping you actually coach the players.

Whatever tasks you assign to your assistant, be sure you communicate clearly and often.

It is important that the coaches working with the players are on the same page. An assistant coach can be a real benefit to you, but only if you invest the effort to build a good working partnership.
