Coach Evaluation Form For Players
Youth sports organization leaders and administrators should endeavor to be Single-Goal Leaders; the goal being to provide a positive, character-building youth sports environment for all youth and high school athletes. That includes a positive organizational culture for staff and for your business needs. Because coaches play a vital role in implementing this culture, it is crucial that leaders and administrators assess each season to make sure they are on the same page as the coaching staff.
Positive Coaching Alliance recommends focusing on three values for evaluation coaches: the extent to which they coach for Mastery of sport (as opposed to a strict scoreboard-only measurement) and the extent to which coaches model and teach Honoring the Game and Filling Emotional Tanks. A coach who embraces these standards -- striving to win, while also pursuing the goal of teaching life lessons through sports -- is considered a Double-Goal Coach®.
Administrators will certainly draw conclusions based on their own interactions and observations of the coaches, but players are the ones who interact more frequently with the coaching staff and have the best insights into how these values and life lessons are, or are not, being taught. This worksheet for players to fill out is an easy way to gather this feedback and add to your own evaluations.
