September 12, 2003, Newsletter Issue #127: UP THE COACHING LADDER

Tip of the Week

Wait until you are ready. NO! I mean REALLY ready! It`s alot more than X`s and O`s. It`s understanding kids, dealing with parents, working with administration, schmoozing with boosters, fundraising, developing a TOTAL program(conditioning, off season work, top to bottom, summer plans, organization)
WHO you are working for is of major importance. Where will you LEARN more? The key is to aquire, utilize, and demonstrate knowledge of the game - then convey that eloquently and with enthusiasm in your next interview as you attempt to move up the ladder.
MOST of all you need to develop TREMENDOUS people skills. A large portion of the job is outside the lines. Get prepared - then your time will come!
Good Luck!
