In a way. In a nutshell, yes, you will need to be a coach, but do so for the purpose of learning the game and the sport.
A lot of coaches today are not focused in the game or the team and instead are focused on their own ego.
The difference between a really good coach and a good player is that coach is focused on what they do best and player focuses on what they can bring to their team and the game.
That is when I start to get mad to see coaches making it personal with players or making players feel like they are a fool for asking questions or asking for help or trying to learn from other players.
A coach is in it for the game and the team.
In coaching, you are on your own as an individual and will be expected to lead and coach from day one.
I really get so excited thinking about who our best coach is going to be over the next few months.
I am confident in our team’s ability and that we can take their job and run with it. There are a lot of good coaches out there, but this will be for us, for our players, to do it ourselves.
With that said, here is how I feel I will need to approach my role as a coach:
Be willing to help others learn how to play.
I can understand that coaching a team in an amateur, junior, college or professional setting is a little different than the professional level, but it’s very important to be committed to your players as they are, not as they think they are.
Be willing to get rid of the ego.
I can understand getting rid of some of the ego or the false sense of self-worth that comes with being a top coach. But I think a coach needs to be very selfless towards their players, they should always care about their teams and they should always be willing to give it their all if the players ask so. We are a team, and we have no choice but to be that. Sometimes you might have a great goal, but if you don’t spend the time or energy working on it, someone else will be more successful.
Don’t over-think what a player can and cannot learn from.
Just because you coached a player to a level where they can now play at that level does not make them a better player or a better coach.
