Challenged to achieve success on the scoreboard and promote the personal growth of the student-athlete, a coach seeks guidance from their coaching philosophy. A coaching philosophy is built on a set of standards by which a coach influences, teaches, and models (Wooden & Jamison, 2005). Using an eight-step approach, the purpose of this session is to assist participants in developing a coaching philosophy that teaches positive values and promotes the development of the student-athlete first.
