Plan of action for a new coach

Imagine you have just taken over as head coach for a team that has the potential to win a title that year. Your season is in the fall and your first day on the job is January 1st. You have complete control over hiring assistants, practice schedule, and game/meet schedule. Please make this assignment to the sport of your choice.

The athletes LOVE the previous coach and are very sad they are leaving, they have had great success under this coach and it seems like it will be hard to sell your perspective.

Write a 3 page paper detailing a plan of action for your new position. The paper needs to be in Times New Roman Font (12 point) and double spaced.

Talk about assessing the culture of the team (what do you look for?) and changing that culture if needed. Can you do that quickly or does it need to be slow?

How do you begin to establish trust with the athletes?

How can you make the team stronger? Give examples of activities to do that.

Talk about your staff and making them feel included and a part of the new team.
