The Assistant Coach’s Guide to Coaching
Assistant coaches are the unsung heroes of any team. While head coaches receive the majority of the attention, assistant coaches are right there—side by side with their head coaches—helping to guide their teams to the success they seek. Most head coaches fully understand how fortunate they are to have great assistants on their staffs. They also understand that how well they and their assistant coaches navigate their relationships and deal with one another has a major impact on their programs.
Unfortunately, not much has been written about these relationships—until now. The Assistant Coach’s Guide to Coaching is the companion to A Head Coach’s Guide for Working with Assistants. That book explained how head coaches must work with their assistant coaches to develop the success they seek for their teams and programs. This book shifts the attention to assistant coaches and how they can impact that success.
While both books are filled with important information for each group, The Assistant Coach’s Guide to Coaching was written to help assistant coaches learn how to help their teams and programs become the best they are capable of becoming. If you are an assistant coach—or considering becoming one—this book will help guide you in this important role on your coaching journey.
