To guide the students in doing sports, high school coaches are hired to help their athletes improve their skills and physical conditioning in the sports they are playing. High school coaches can also work as teachers to teach the rest of the student body on physical and health education.

Responsibilities of a High School Coach

A high school coach is an expert on the rules and regulations of any sport they focus on and they teach the students how to play that type of sport. Sometimes, they also teach physical education to students too. A coach decides which students are qualified to make a particular sports team by holding tryouts for athletes and training during the preseason matches. Furthermore, they strategically assign student-athletes on what positions they have in their team based on their skills, make game strategies, and design practice skills to equip students with enough knowledge on how to play the sport and win the match.  A coach also guides the students in every game match and analyzes them to identify which areas these students should improve on.

Don’t forget to include your terms and conditions regarding the renewal of the coach’s contract.

2. Working Hours
