The Unicorn Coach

Post by Hersoccerdad on Sun Feb 10, 2019 9:10 pm

This is in reference to Coaching Landscape posted earlier. Reminded me of a post I meant to post earlier. What is THE Unicorn Coach? Mine?

1) Development of the player
2) Understands that each player is different and how you coach each one is different.
3) Coaches the player to what you want them to become. Not what they are.
4) Very good communicator. With both the player and parent. What it is they expect from
a player, what constitutes playing time (why were they pulled, less playing time). Sometimes
you have to raise your voice, sometimes it's just a look, sometimes something in between.
5) Open to constructive criticism and able to say yes I agree or no I don't and here's why

We were with a great coach at one time. His phrase. "It's not where we are, it's where we're going."
We, most of us Smile didn't care about winning so much as long as the team was "learning" the proper way to play soccer (development). Over three years, we won more each year, but more importantly, we heard comments from other team parents and refs that we played the way soccer is suppose to be played. That was validation that we were being coached correctly. Thanks TM.
