  • I am in the process of completing a review and report on our coaching and performance programme. I would like to hear other member's views on the subject of athletes becoming coaches and performance managers after they have stopped competing.

    I am aware that some competitors go on to become excellents coaches, but experience tells me that this is not always the case. My observations are telling me that some ex-athlete/coaches deliver their sessions in a mirrored content of what they experienced, and don't look at the bigger picture. In other words they end up coaching their athletes as if it were themselves.

    Comments most welcome, and perhaps admin may even consider a poll.

    Great question David. You might also find replies to this Simon Browning thread from a while back useful: Do ex-players make the best coaches?

    I look forward to reading any new replies you get.

    We would have liked to run one for you David but there is currently a bug that has meant we have difficulty running polls at the moment...so apologies about that!
