The benefits of a coach education course and certification to an organization are:
- A more consistent approach among coaches;
- The development and implementation of a league-wide philosophy;
- Quality control;
- More prepared coaches.
The volunteer coach becomes the face of the organization for a player and parent. Often, the coach provides a great experience and the player and parent are very happy.
As an organization, how do you insure the same experience in the next season when the player has a different coach?
Occasionally, the player and parent are unhappy with their coach. How does the organization remedy the situation?
The best answer is a coach education course and certification. If all coaches meet minimum qualifications through a certification process, the organization knows that the coach understands the basics of the game and the basics of coaching.
