At some level, most students have been coached in one or more sports. However, all coaches are different. This program looks at the skills a good sports coach is required to possess such as: leadership, management, enthusiasm, and good communication. We examine three different coaching styles: authoritarian, distant yet approachable, friendly. The main characteristics of a respected coach – honesty, integrity, extensive knowledge and high expectations are also discussed. We see how coaching varies for different skill levels, ages and abilities. Students learn that coaches are a powerful influence on our involvement in, and enjoyment of sport.
