What kind of a coach are you?

Marcin Bieniek examines the kind of coach you may be based on your personality and inner motivation.

All players all different but what about coaches? Yes, the same rule applies. All coaches are different in many ways - their methodology, approach to individualities, approach to the profession, etc. In this article, I want to look at Coach's approach.

All players are different, but what about coaches? Yes, the same rule applies. All coaches are different in their methodology, approach to individualities, approach to the profession, etc. In this article, I want to look at Coach's approach.

Group coach

This coach prefers group lessons. They like working with many players at a time. Have an arsenal of drills because they will use more variations not to bore their players. They should not have problems with communication.

Individual coach

This coach prefers one-to-one lessons. They focus only on one player and do not like to be distracted by others. They should be an experienced player because they will have to rally a lot.

Kids coach

This coach likes to train kids. They should be easy-going, patient, and communicative. An imaginative mind should be a strength. Knowledge about teaching methods and how they learn should be acquired.

Tournament coach

This coach strives for training with competitive players. They should have a broad knowledge of every aspect of the tennis game (Mental, physical, and professional teaching methods). They should like travelling and spending weekends at tournaments.

Money coach

This coach's primary goal is to earn money. It does not matter what clients they are going to train. They prefer to stay in one place and be a city coach.

Finally

These are the five primary roles, and which kind of coach you will be is truly in your hands. As you can see, different goals are connected to different roles, so you must match them with your personality and inner motivation.
