Communications Skills Training Class for Coaches

 

​"The bottom line up front, it is all about Role Models and Mentors for young kids".  Can you really expect volunteer coaches in a leadership position to do an excellent job with no structured training or direction? They need to be prepared to do the job you're expecting them to do.


Many of your fellow cities and local organizations are now providing their coaches, both new and experienced, with training classes and manuals to help them lead their youth teams.

ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS

  • Do your coaches have all the insight they need to smoothly run a team?
  • Are the children receiving proper mentoring?
  • Are your sports coaches knowledgeable, but have difficulty communicating?
  • Would you like to provide more direction, help, and/or guidance to your coaches, but don't have time or resources to do so?

Allow us the opportunity to discuss the program that's receiving outstanding praise from program directors and their coaches in your neighboring cities.

What if all coaches really understood their impact on kids?

Directors are more aware than ever of their responsibility to reduce parent conflict in their recreational programs. Our training provides volunteer coaches and attendees with the communication tools and skills needed to recognize and diffuse most situations before they escalate. Coaches have been universal in saying that it's the best hands-on training they've ever received.

 

This training class is designed to help both new and experienced volunteer coaches communicate effectively with the families and players they'll work with throughout the season. The training program teaches techniques for team direction and effective communication. These skills can eliminate many problems before they ever happen and, therefore, potentially reduce your program's liability. Coaches will have the confidence to run an organized team and be more comfortable handling every individual member.
