  1. Passion for the sport is a must and it directly reflected in the personality of the coach. the morals the values and the respect to others and all a part of the passion I believe. The day in day out working hard to find answers to make their students learn and improve themselves as well. I love the 10 points listed here. thanks for this 🙂

  2. Hello,

    The most important question is missing: has the coach been checked if he has a criminal past, especially concerning molestation of children. Get everyone screened before they are allowed to work with children!!
