As a club Bedworth United are constantly looking to move forward. To that end we are looking for motivated individuals to become coaches for junior sides.
Why become a junior coach –
You love kids. If you don’t love kids, you should not be coaching.
You want to be a positive role model, something kids so desperately need. Many coaches don’t fully realize the impact they can have on kids’ lives. It can be huge, and lifelong.
You love the game and want to pass that love on to kids. Spread the joy of playing a sport you love!
You’ve seen coaches who are not doing it right and you want to do your part to correct that. It’s frustrating to stand or sit on the sidelines and see coaches who are clueless about motivating, challenging, and encouraging kids. Maybe it’s time for you to step up and help!
You want to show kids that hard work and fun can go hand-in-hand. They are not mutually exclusive.
Although your job is not to solely please the parents, you do care about helping them understand how they can be a positive voice in their kids’ sports experience. Youth sports are just as much a learning experience for parents as for kids. Your example and positive voice can help them as much as their kids.
You are tired of hearing about abusive coaches and want to be part of a changing tide. You’ve seen that coach, either on your side of the field or court or on the opponent’s side. Instead of complaining, BE the change you want to see.
You love competition and winning, but not more than you love to see young players develop. Every coach wants to win, but youth sports coaches need to have as their number one priority the development of young athletes, both in character and in skill.
You don’t care about the money. A youth sports coach will never make a lot of money, and most of them are volunteers. If you can happily donate a ton of time, then go for it!
You want to be part of your child’s youth sports experience. If you’re a mom or dad who wants to coach and you can adhere to the above reasons, then go be part of your child’s world!
What Qualities do you need –
A Good Role Model – Most footballers join teams at the age of 6, this is a very critical stage in their lives where they are most impressionable, it is therefore very important that they see someone they can look up to in their coach. If they find someone they can imitate, it helps them listen and improve.
A Good teacher – It is one thing to be able to command the respect of your players and another to be a good teacher. The basic aspects of football include passing, dribbling, shooting, and tackling. These are things that cannot just be taught by word of mouth, they must be practically shown to the kids for them to understand. A coach has to be able to do these in front of the kids.
Team Motivator – Most of the time, results may not go your way and as a coach, you might be called upon to lift the spirits of your players. Most of them at that age take defeat differently, some take it as though their world has just ended. Teaching them through motivation to learn how to take a loss gracefully and look forward to the next challenge is what makes a good coach.
Friendly – Establishing a good rapport with the kids is very important. As much as they need to know and understand why you are strict when it counts, they also need to be shown the friendlier side so they can be free and open with you. This makes communication easier.
What the club will offer in return –
Education – The club will pay for you to complete your Introduction to Coaching Football course, FA Safeguarding, FA introduction to First Aid and your CRC which once completed will allow you coach.
Support – The club will support you on your journey with a robust Welfare team and support from other junior managers.
