  • Sports have been in my life since i was 4 years old. My sports career started with tee ball and as i got older they escalated to wrestling and football. No matter what the season was i would always be playing a sport. Up to my high school sports career i have had many coaches, the majority of them wernt the best. But a few can stand out to me that put the dedication and time into me to try and give me the opportunity for me to excel. Wrestling has been my main focus for awhile because the coaches i had spent hundreds of hours trying to make me the best i could be and iv built a great relationship with them that will last a long time. you guys will see a few later in my presentation. but one is\n\n
  • Like i said in my personal relavance slide i have made great relationships with many coaches but one that has probably been the closest to me has been my coach, larry Mazzerelle. Larry has been my coach since my second year of wrestling when i was nine years old. He has stayed with me almost every year all the way till the end of my high school career. Larry has seen me grow up and was a pretty big reason i chose this topic for my SGP. I went from getting coached by him, to coaching beside him, which was a very fun experience. \n
  • The basic over view of a good coach for any sport should have a great knowledge for the game. He or she should be able to critic anything that their athlete is doing wrong and teach them the proper technique. The only way a coach can succeed is to dedicate him or herself to the sport. The coach that dedicates themselves will get the attention and respect of the athlete they are training. At any age level youth to college respect is a major key to success. Once the coach can gain the respect of their athlete then they can teach them more and push them harder. The athlete wont want to disappoint their coach so they keep pushing to meet his/her expectations. But of coarse all of this vaires with the age groups and i will get more into the techniques and strategies for coaching all levels in a few slides.\n
  • 1. With a youth coach the dedication should be to the few practices that are held for the kids each week, at that young age if you try and coach them to long and hard it will just burn the athlete out and they wont want to continue in the sport. This is a major key that most coaches at this level will forget, A young athlete will not have the attention span of one of an older age. Teaching the young athletes should not be overwhelming. Only teach them what they can handle because they will not remember what they were taught and they will completely zone you out after awhile, so try and keep things short sweet and to the point. \n2. When you are coaching them not every kid will understand what you may be showing them the first few times, so you have to stay patient. Sometimes coaching this age gets a little frustrating so no matter what, NO YELLING ! raising your voice to motivate them through a hard practice or to get their attention is completely fine but yelling because they are not doing something right or because you are getting stressed from them is wrong. So yell to motivate not to demean. And here is a stat from a survey done by the Minnesota Amateur Sports commission, 45.3 % of kids that were surveyed have either been yelled at, called names or been insulted by a coach. \n3. Probably the most important thing to do with this young age group is to have fun with them. Keep them interested in the sport by playing some games. Games that help with the sport or ones that the kids like. For example, When i coached the youth team we played a game called chess... but when the kids got tired of that we played dodgeball or football. Fun and games need to be included to keep the focus of the kids and this will help there moral. \n

  • Everyone that plays sports or watches sports loves to know stats on there favorite athletes or teams. I decided to find some stats on kids in youth sports. 30 -40 million kids a year play some type of organized sport. There are around 2-4 million coaches, less than 20 percent of them have had any type of training to be a coach, and 85 percent are fathers coaching there kids. Less than 20 percent of high school kids play a sport. There are ruffly 500,000 hs coaches, less than 8 percent of that number receive specific education to coach.\n
  • Coaching high school is in a way tricky. This level of wrestling is varied mostly on the area of where the school is located. Coaches tend to be varied also. The great programs in the good wrestling areas have outstanding coaches that are dedicated and knowledgable. This level requires more commitment than coaching a youth program. At this level more intangibles are need to have success. Coaches will have to start stressing a lot more technique and strength training. I was able to coach some things to the high school team so it was great to see the different levels.\n
  • Sebastian work with me for hours and hours over the summer. Some practices lasted 4 to 5 hours straight. So spending all that time together we became good friends. He has wrestled on every level from youth to college. \n

  • Like larry said a couple slides ago college sports can be like a job, its physically and mentally challenging. The levels vary on the different division you may pick but it requires dedication and a good motor to keep you going.\n
  • Many parents and coaches have very different views on how both youth coaches should react when a match is over, win or lose. Many parents are way to hard on there child. \n
  • A lot of parents fit into this category, esecially when there kid becomes older.\n
  • \n
  • -Mistakes will happen at all levels it is always guaranteed. Practicing can help limit the amount of mistakes but there will always be at least some. So a good coach should know the right and wrong time to correct the mistakes. The best times are in the next practice that is being held, this way can benefit the whole team because it will show everyone how to prevent the mistake from happening again. Also once the athletes game or match is over so they will be able to process it right away.\n- It is usually best to not show it as soon as it happens. EX. So if you have a little league baseball player names brian desch that just makes an error, dont show him what he did right away. All that is doing is singling him out and embarrassing him. This goes back to what i said about bad coaching, this will only make the athlete lose respect for his coach and might make him lose interest in the sport since he is getting singled out.\n\n
  • Everyone has at least one memory of there childhood, whether it is good or bad it is still a memory. Many people that i have talked too remember the bad memories rather than the good ones.\n
  • \n
  • This is a big key for any coach. All ages should be treated differently. Younger children should be treated completely different then an older child. The older the athlete gets the more strict the practices and the coaching should get harder and more intense. A younger kids coach needs to have fun and build the relationship.\n
  • Ken Chertow has mastered every aspect of coaching and he has pushed US youth wrestling to a whole new level. His life has been absolutely devoted to wrestling, both competing and coaching. He runs some of the best camps all throughout the entire United States and has had a very prolific career that is still going strong. Chertow won a olympic gold metal for the United States. In his camps he thinks that emphasizing skill development is one of the biggest things he can do. He does not teach the kids more then they can handle, and keeping his students interested in what he is doing is key. Chertow will often ad stories and do fun activities like live matches to keep the attention of the kids. He also believes a key thing is teaching the wrestlers self discipline and sportsmanship. Cherrtow coaches his studetns how to win but he also coaches them on how to become a better more well rounded person. Not many coaches on Chertows level are like this and this is why he is the best at what he does.\n

  • For my application i talked to my coach larry that I interviewed and asked him if i could come down to the youth program to help out with the kids. I went down to there practices and helped the whole group of kids with execution and technique mainly. but i also helped more advanced small group of kids to perfect a certain series of moves that I pretty much perfected this year with another coach of mine. It can only be taught to a more experienced group because it is a very brutal set of moves and can be in a way dangerous if not taught correct.\n
  • Here are some pictures of me coaching two more advanced wrestlers the pokemon series. I didnt come up with the name but thats what it goes by. As you can see in some of the pictures that it is a very physical move and deals alot with a tight and strong grip around the opponents neck. And no im not choking the kids !\n
  • after i got to practice with the kids for a while so i was happy to be able to get to know them and gain there respect enough to be able to coach them at there district tournament. It was fun to be able to see them use the moves i taught them and most of them did a good job. It was also fun to coach beside my good friend and coach. \n
  • I put a video together of most of the pictures i took of the practices and tournaments dealing with the youth team. I also added a few pictures of the people that helped me.\n
  • Get into groups of two and decide who wants to be the seeker and who wants to be the coach. There will be three different levels for the coach. I will tell which level you will be when your partner is blind folded. There will be a very calm, a medium and a yelling intense coach.\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • The main thing that i have seen throughout this whole project was actually stated in my thesis. Every kid is different and they wont always be able to be taught the same way. So i had to change my coaching style for many of the kids. I learned different coaching styles help kids\n
