There are several essential characteristics of any successful coach.  Some of these traits include constantly working on his/her craft, the ability to put out “fires,” establishing clear roles on a team, and being organized and prepared, among others.  Successful coaches also have the ability to manage the invested and involved parents of today’s student-athletes.  This session will create a definition of “success,” examine common characteristics shared by successful coaches, and it will  share experiences in managing parents of today’s student-athletes (the good, the bad, and the ugly).
