What should I consider when developing a coaching philosophy?

Coaching Style

Your coaching style will play a huge part in determining how you implement your philosophy. Set some goals for your team. First, determine what you want your team to accomplish, and what you want them to get out of the experience. What’s most important? Winning? Getting along with each other and getting everyone equal playing time? Both? In other words, set priorities. If you’re coaching a youth level team, simply getting everyone some playing time might be your top priority. This will most likely not be the case, however, if you’re an AAU, high school, or college coach.
