COACHING EXPECTATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
I. Coach’s Professional and Personal Relationships and ExpectationsThe need for precise job description specifications is becoming obvious withthe stronger emphasis on credibility and accountability in coaching. There isa need for criteria to measure coaching accomplishments within theframework of school district objectives for their activity programs. Thesemajor performance areas stand out above others:A. Rapport:A coach must be able to develop a good rapport with any number of individuals and groups: team personnel, the student body, the professionalstaff (faculty, administration, maintenance, etc.), the community as a whole,spectators, officials, fellow coaches, media representatives, and the parentsof his/her players. Good rapport and an image of competency are invaluablefor the coach.B. Cooperation:The district expects a positive give and take relationship between allindividuals associated in any degree with the comprehensive program.Coaches must work hand in hand with their athletic director, principal, andother members of their staff.C. Leadership:Diligence, enthusiasm, honesty, and love for the game are all part of aprofessional pride that should be exhibited by any coach. Personalappearance, dress – all should be exemplary. Dressing appropriately forpractice, following practice schedules, and building positive attitudes are veryimportant.D. Discipline:Every facet of discipline is the coach’s responsibility. Individually, the coachbecomes a model of all that the program represents – observation of schoolcodes, training rules, rules of the game, ideals of good sportsmanship,behavior of participants throughout the season – at home or away. Thedesire to do your best, to win with class, and to lose with class should beemphasized. Staff, players, and spectators should be motivated toward yourestablished discipline goals.E. Improvement:A coach must constantly take advantage of opportunities presented for self-improvement. Attendance at district meetings, rules clinics, specialworkshops, and clinics in specific fields and similar in-service trainingprograms are a must. Keeping abreast of current literature in professional journals, newspapers and magazines are excellent ways of utilizingenrichment materials to improve in areas of weakness or affirmation.
