What Can Coaches Do?

Coaches are essentially role models for the team and should also lead by example. Sports are competitive and gaming environments can be saturated in emotion. It is important for coaches to know how to keep his or her emotions in check and also be aware of the team’s feelings as well. Coaches should also establish open lines of communication with the team and parents, if need be.
