Coaches Box - A Note of Appreciation
Just a short thank you to all the men and women who; took all the time necessary, gave up all that family and even vacation time, planned all those practices, went to all those tournaments, listened to all those excuses for missing all those planned practices, put up with all those bad refs’ calls at all those tournaments, cared so much about each player, tried so hard to be positive in critiquing the players, and loved practically every minute of it!!!!!!!!!!!
Fencor prides itself on the quality of volunteer coaches we have. Not that each one is perfect all the time but overall there is a lot of basketball taught, team building done, individual improvement and positive relationships built. On average between 2 practices a week and about 7 tournaments per team, the coach spends a minimum of 120 hours with the team, not counting any travel, planning, phone calls, ‘wondering’ time, tryouts, and meetings. Somewhere all this fits the definition of commitment. Thanks!
Interested in becoming a Fencor Coach? Here are the qualifications.
The club looks for people that can meet the demanding time commitment, have some knowledge of the game from playing and/or coaching, and can organize and manage practices and games.
At least as important as that skill set is that the coach can keep winning in perspective, handle varying levels of parental interest, create a team atmosphere, and understand the important impact a coach can have on a young player.
Different age levels clearly need coaches with different abilities and outlooks. The club has a Criminal Background Check and Child Abuse History Clearance done on each potential coach. We try hard not to have a parent coach a Fencor team with his or her child on that team.
