15 questions to ask myself when coaching my junior sports team.

15 questions to ask myself when coaching my junior sports team.

 
1. Do I look like a coach who is ready for training? Am I wearing the appropriate kit?

 
2. Am I prepared with all the activities and equipment ready?

 
3. What’s my plan if one of the kids gets injured during training? Have I got another adult staying for the session?

 
4. What can I say to ensure we start and end the session positively?

 
5. Am I using terminology that the kids will understand? Is it appropriate?

 
6. Have I got every kid’s attention before I explain this next activity?

 
7. How could I check that the kids have understood what I’m saying? Should I get them to explain it to me before we move on?

 
8. Who has a birthday or special occasion this week that we can all celebrate?

 
9. Should I give his mum and dad a call? He really doesn’t seem himself lately. I wonder if everything is ok? I’d hate for them to think I don’t care.

 
10. Are we making progress as a team? Should I be changing anything here?

 
11. How can I challenge these guys? They really seem up for it.

 
12. Why can’t I seem to get through to these kids? Are they not having fun? Should I be changing my approach?

 
13. Who can I ask about getting some new ideas for training sessions?

 
14. Who could I ask for some feedback about my coaching?

 
15. What will I learn from these kids tonight?
