Goal Setting and Commitment

 In this artifact it goes into how goal setting can increase an individual’s commitment
toward a personal or team goal and how it can encourage them to work harder to
complete the goals they have choose. Locke (1968) says how setting goals effects
performance in four ways, they focus attention, mobilizes effort in proportion to the
demand, enhances performance and they encourage the individual to develop
strategies to achieve their goals. There are outcome goals, process goals, performance
goals and the SMARTER and GROW models to help pick goals that are achievable. This
relates to the intended topic because it also talks about how important and crucial goals
are for teams to be successful because it gives them something to work towards. I will
utilize these findings by using the models to help my team choose personal and team
goals, I will also make sure they know why this is important and how they will achieve
Fitness and Nutrition

 In this artifact it talks about how there is unique physical and performance
characteristics that help performance on the field for specific positions. For example,
receivers and defensive backs tend to be smaller specialty players who need to work on
total body strength and power and flexibility of all body parts to enhance speed and
decrease risk of injury. These positions also should do a lot of plyometric training along
with strength training to improve coordination and stabilization. Lineman on the other
hand are the biggest on the field and engage in physical contact on every play. These
players need to work strength and power training along with conditioning drills to
improve footwork and quickness. Nutrition for football players include consuming
protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals and plenty of water. This relates to the
topic because without proper training and nutrition all the work you put in won’t mean
anything if you don’t feed your body just like we talked about in class. I will use this in
my coaching by emphasizing how important it is to use proper fitness for their
designated position and then to properly feed themselves after to ensure their success.
Injury Prevention and Pain Management

 In this artifact it gives descriptions on the most common injuries in football like
traumatic injuries (ACL tears and shoulder injuries), concussions, overuse injuries and
heat injuries. These can be prevented by having a preseason health and wellness
evaluations, proper warm up and cool down routines, staying hydrated, proper tackling
technique and consistently having strength training and stretching. This relates to the
topic because its very important to know as a coach how you can prevent as many
injuries as possible and ways to realize if a player is hurt. I will use this in my coaching by
always evaluating my players to ensure they are healthy and to teach them ways to take
care of their body while still getting bigger, faster and stronger.
Interpersonal Communication

 In this artifact it talks about how important communication is for the offense because it
allows the entire offense to play seamlessly. If the QB didn’t communicate with the
whole offensive unit it would be chaos on the field because everyone would be doing
different things. Without communication there will be nothing productive that happens
on the field and that will affect you as a whole team. Leaders also need to be able to
modify the play when a problem occurs and communicate with the whole team to make
sure it gets adjusted and the team can operate efficiently. This relates to the topic by
reiterating how important the communication aspect of sport is and that everyone
needs to be on the same page especially interpersonally with each other. I will use this
information in my coaching by ensuring every athlete on my team can communicate
with each other and know where ever player needs to be on each play, also I will make
sure they have interpersonal relationships with each other so there isn’t any hate on the

Becoming a High-Performance Coach


 In this artifact it gives you 10 ways or tips to becoming a high-performance coach, they
are to learn and understand the rules of your game, to always watch and critique film,
finding a mentor, get feedback from other coaches, attend clinics and conferences, learn
new drills and techniques, know your offensive/defensive/special schemes, learn how to
coach every position, staying up-to-date with new trends and learn how to better
evaluate your player personnel. This relates to the topic because all these tips listed
were talked about in class and how they can translate to becoming a successful coach. I
will utilize this in my coaching by constantly reminding myself of these tips and always
trying to better myself. Also, I will send these tips to my assistant coaches to help them
improve their coaching styles and to help me as a coach to always hold me accountable.
Providing an Athlete-Centered Environment


 In this artifact it goes into the athlete-centered approach and how its supposed to
unleash the potential of athletes through promoting learning through ownership,
awareness and responsibility. You should ask the athletes questions instead of direct
instruction to increase their awareness and responsibility. Coaches in this approach will
provide a planned and structured environment based on the team’s goals, ask questions
about what the athlete noticed about their performance and enable athletes to practice
the skill or tactic they need to individual work on. Also, the coaches will accept athlete’s
opinions, establish reasonable limits for their behaviors and stresses the intrinsic value
of rewards over the extrinsic value. This relates to the class topic because we covered
very similar concepts about the athlete-centered approach and how it can help the
athlete greatly, also we covered the direct benefits to the athlete if you use this
approach and how much more motivated they will be if you do. I will utilize this in my
coaching by using this approach to benefit my players to give them more freedom and
motivation while they play. Also, it will give my players more respect toward me
because they will have opportunities to give input and ideas for plays since I’m not the
one playing on the field.
Coaching High-Performance Athletes with a Disability


 In this artifact it goes into the important factors that coaches need to consider when
training athletes with disabilities. They are keeping a good balance among mind,
technique and body in training these athletes, accept each athlete’s disability/physical
conditions as unique and design appropriate training programs for them, develop an
awareness of the equipment that these athletes need for their particular sport and
coaches need to address the added dimension of analyzing the movements of an
asymmetric body with restricted range of motion. Its important for coaches of disabled
athletes to find aspects of research for able-bodied athletes that they can transfer into
sport programs for disabled athletes. This relates to the class topic because we talked
about how to handle disabled athletes and different ways to coach them, in this article
it gives similar tips and strategies we discussed that will help you with coaching athletes
with a disability. I will use these tips in my coaching because when you come across an
athlete that is disabled its very crucial to know and understand what they need to be
successful. Also, its important to treat them like any other athlete and these tips give
good recommendations on how to do that.
Characteristics of High-Performance Athletes & Coaches

 In this artifact it goes into how high-performance isn’t always a level of competition, but
it is a mindset to have. As a high-performance athlete or coach its very important to
remember that there is a reason for everything you are doing and its not just because
someone wants you too, also its important to know that resources are optimized and
can be very useful in your everyday life to help improve your overall game or approach.
You also need to remember that everyone you will go against is going to be prepared for
the upcoming season or match, so you must remember your training and preparation
and use it to your advantage. Finally, you need to know that you must do exactly what’s
needed everyday and decisions are performance based and not ego based so you can
never let your ego get in the way of what you do. This relates to the topic because all
these things listed here are characteristics each HP athlete and coach should realize and
do everyday to be the best version of their self. I will utilize these characteristics within
myself and show them to my athletes so we both never forget what is expected from us
each and every day. Also, if we start to stray away from these its important for me and
the athletes to hold each other accountable and never let each other forget who we are
and what we are about.

Coaching Males vs. Females


 In this artifact it goes into how females are often more coachable than males because
they are more willing to try new techniques especially if it will help them. Where as
males tend to be more aware of their prowess and less coachable especially if they
don’t think their coach is credible and they wont trust them right away if they don’t
have a proven coaching record. When looking at confidence females tend to have more
consistent confidence through tough struggles and they are taught at a young age to be
more confident and tough. Males on the other hand have confidence issues when they
have poor preparation, self-attitude and poor social behavior. Coaches of male athletes
need to keep their egos in check and remind them that there is room for improvement
and they can’t take things for granted. When girls receive criticism as a team from a
coach they believe its directed towards them and that they need to personally play
better, where when guys receive it from a coach they think the coach is right and they
need to do better as a team or they will lose. This relates to the topic because men and
women are different people and they both need to be coached differently to be
successful as a team. I will use this in my coaching to realize and understand how I need
to motivate or critic my players based on their gender to make sure I get a positive
response from them without loosing their respect.
