How To Work Effectively With Assistant Coaches

Are you getting the most out of your assistant coaches? Do you have assistant coaches? Coaching a team sport is a tremendous task and not something that can be completed easily by one person. To coach a team effectively takes the collective effort of numerous coaches.

These days professional sports teams might appear to have excessive numbers of assistant coaches. But when money is involved these teams aren’t going to waste it on coaches who don’t have an impact. They know the importance of having many assistant coaches and you should too.

If you don’t have an assistant coach, do yourself a favor and get one. If you only have one assistant coach, try and get another. It isn’t often easy finding assistant coaches, but they can be worth their weight in gold if used effectively. But that is the key, you need to get the most out of them.

If head coaches are not utilising their assistant coaches effectively, they can seem more of a burden than an assistant at times. So, it is crucial to strategically plan out coaches’ roles so that each coach’s time and skills are used to full effect.

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”

Helen Keller

Coordinating assistant coaches time to get the most out of them is not an easy task. However, below is a button that will take you to an article by Ryan Maye that discusses a strategy he calls ghost coaching. This is one way to maximise your assistant coaches time and allows you to focus on one area of coaching your team whilst your assistant/s work on another. If you have more than one assistant, this same strategy can be applied. Having multiple coaches allows you to spread your coaching team across more individuals or areas of your team. If coordinated effectively your athletes will feel as though they are receiving the consistent feedback and coaching they require, and your team will reap the rewards.
