One of the major challenges for today’s volunteer sports organizations is training its volunteer coaches. Without a comfort level that comes with knowledge of the game, coaches can sometimes emphasize scrimmaging and fun games that sacrifice player development. This can be counterproductive to development of your players and can lead to participation drop-off. Another issue seen in today’s volunteer organization is getting more volunteers. If parents are educated in some basic coaching methods and drills they can become good coaches. If they know that there is training available then they are more likely to volunteer and help.
Merrimack Valley Sports will help train your coaches by running coaches clinics on-site. Our staff not only has coaches but we have professionals that have worked as training consultants and understand adult learning theory and instructional design. On-site clinics provide more convenience and allow the organization to advertise to get the best attendance possible. We also offer off-site clinics, for more information, please contact us.
