Is there anyway of telling or indicating wether you would be a good strength and conditioning coach before you start to really begin your education (ie. uni)August 19, 2008 at 4:50 am #24072ashleyGuest
That is a really tough question, I do not think you ever know until you get in with your own team and start finding out as much about yourself as about the players you train, as I have posted before I really in looking back am glad I did a teaching degree first, which taught me communication and organisation, which is so important as a s & c coach, and having a passion for what you do with an open persoanlity that you can motivate people cheers, ashAugust 19, 2008 at 5:01 am #24074propGuest
I remember hearing Phil Gould being interviewed and talked about coaching and about a player who was nearing the end of his career but starting to lose passion and waas interested in becomming a coach, to which Gould told him to coach himself, as in decided how he would coach a player in his position and then see if he enjoyed/ was good at it. That said if i were to mabey write out a program designed for myself and my goals imbalances ect. would I be able to get feed back?August 19, 2008 at 5:27 am #24073ashleyGuest
By all means, please write your ideas for your program down and post them and I would be happy to make some suggestions, I think it is great that you want to write it out yourself, which is the best way to learn what and how, often great players fail to become good coaches since they sometimes do not know how to break down a skill and teach it becasue it has always come so naturally to them in the first place, cheers, ashley
