THOUGHTS ON DEVELOPING ASSISTANT COACHES

This list comes from Coach Don Meyer who had done an incredible job of developing assistant coaches who have moved on and had great careers throughout the nation.

#1 Allow some responsibilities and opportunities to talk and teach.

#2 Track their progress and give feedback.

#3 At the start of practice, give each assistant coach some duties to perform.

#4 Ask your assistants for their thoughts and suggestions.

#5 Give them books/articles to read to help their development

#6 Supplement their pay through summer camps
