When I first started out in my coaching career a mentor of mine told me, Coaching is 80% preparation, while
20% is actually on the field fun and by the way I do not know, specifically, if those numbers are completely
accurate, but coaching is a lot of preparation. At the time she told me this, I did not understand what she meant,
nor did I think what she was saying was actually true. That is, until I actually started coaching.
Within each level of coaching I have worked, I have had to start somewhere, with a plan in place. Before I could
move on to learning rules, planning schedules (for practices and games), making travel arrangements, recruiting
(yes, even youth teams require some form of recruiting), planning physical training activities, establishing what
skills and tactics I wanted to teach, attending meetings, etc I had to determine what my priorities would be at
the beginning of the season. For softball teams, it is a year of preparation typically starting in early fall with
games starting as early as February (for college) and running through July (for travel softball), depending on the
level being coached.
For the purpose of this final paper, please read the scenario below and use the scenario to write your final paper
You have recently been hired as the new ______________ coach (you determine the sport) at Mid State
University. The program you are coaching has been in existence for years. The former head coach decided to
retire last year with an overall winning record, several conference championships and appearances in regional
tournaments over the course of his tenure. The last five years, however, the team has finished in the middle of
the conference standings, making it to playoffs each year, but falling just short of the conference tournament
title, keeping the team from regional play. The athletic director and members of the search committee stressed
during the interview process that a conference title is extremely important to the school and would like to see a
conference title in the next four years.
You are excited to get started but know you need to plan some logistics right away. After getting your keys from
the athletic director and sitting down at your office desk, you all of a sudden realize that you are the HEAD
COACH! With excitement (and a little bit of fear), you begin to picture amazing victories over rival opponents,
tears from tough losses, team runs at 6am up the side of Big Hill, crowds cheering wildly for your team, future
All Americans receiving recognition from your program . Then you begin to think, how can I do all of that
During the interview process, I had great answers, was offered, and accepted this positon, thought I knew
exactly what I was going to do. Where do I start
Using concepts from this course, knowledge from previous coaching experiences, and of course your coaching
philosophy as resources, discuss your top three to five priorities in starting as a new head coach. Explain the
following for each priority:
