As a club, we have three formal communication loops between players, parents, and coaches. They occur in September, October, and November. Here's an overview of the communication process. Look for a Player Progress Review from your coach in September and an opportunity to provide feedback about your coach via online survey in October.
PLAYER PROGRESS REVIEWS. Month of September. Conducted in person.
Sept 1. An outline of the Player Progress discussion is distributed by the Director of Coaching to parents regarding the dimensions on which the player's progress will be discussed. This is the format you can expect your coach to follow in individual discussions.
Sep 1 - 31. Coaches complete individual player progress discussions.
PLAYER/PARENT FEEDBACK SURVEY. Month of October. Conducted online.
Oct 1 - 30. Parents/players fill out an online survey regarding their soccer experience to-date. It is important to note that individual survey responses are anonymous and not shared with the coach. Rather, individual responses are aggregrated and used to provide general feedback to the coach regarding their performance. Player/parent feedback is one dimension, albeit an important one, of several on which coaching performance is reviewed.
COACH PERFORMANCE REVIEWS. Month of November. Conducted in person.
Nov 1. Email from DOC to coaches with schedule of reviews.
Nov 1 - 31. Individual performance reviews between DOC and coach.
