Conduct Self-Evaluation

Head coaches typically have their hands in all aspects of the team therefore it is a good idea to take the time to evaluate yourself and make sure you are moving in the right direction. Self-evaluation can quickly help you realize your strengths and area’s for improvement.IMG_5759

  1. Be thorough in your self-evaluation by taking the time to recap decisions and process’s both on and off the field
  2. Ask yourself the following questions:
    • Am I the head coach I set out to be?
    • Am I growing the team by fostering positive skills and knowledge?
    • Am I meeting the goals of myself, the team, and the league?
    • Do I have the tools necessary to make my team be fun and successful?
    • Am I connecting with the athletes, parents, and coaches?
    • Am I doing everything I need to be doing to be a fun and instructional teacher of clay target sports?
    • How is my role as the head coach affecting my family?
  3. Encourage feedback from your coaches and write down the suggestions that you receive.
  4. Organize the feedback you have received by breaking it out into hard and soft skills, this will allow you to see things as a whole helping you with your next set of goals.
  5. Make sure to include self-evaluation on a yearly basis as this will help you make the necessary corrections and keep balance amongst all of your volunteer duties.
