Coach Expectations & Guidelines

Coach Expectations and Guidelines

 

As a coach I will:

  • Remember that all the players are playing for their enjoyment, not for mine.

  • Place the emotional and physical well being of my players ahead of a personal desire or external pressure to win.

  • Remember that athletes play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves.

  • Teach athletes to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials, opponents, other coaches, and volunteers.

  • Do my best to provide a safe playing environment for the athlete.

  • Ensure that all athletes get equitable instruction, support and playing time.

  • Remember that athletes need a coach they can respect.  I will be generous with praise and set a good example.

  • Work in cooperation with officials.

  • Not ridicule or yell at my athletes, coaches or officials for making mistakes.

  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.

  • Obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my coaching skills.

  • Role model the appropriate behaviours.  Yelling at athletes, coach and umpires is prohibited.

  • Give equal access to infield/outfield, not in the same position all the time, batting order will also be rotated.
