Let CoachCorner be your Reference


by Andrew Zessar

One of the biggest pain points we see in young coaches is struggling to find where to start their coaching journey. There are so many people across the US who are passionate about their sport, many who will make fantastic coaches, but they don’t have any formal coaching experience, yet. At the same time, one of the biggest needs for an athletic director hiring a coach is references from previous positions. Naturally, the prospective coach winds up in a chicken-and-egg problem of: How do I get references if I don’t have experience, and how do I get experience if I don’t have references?

The answer: Let CoachCorner be your reference. CoachCorner was founded by coaches with years of experience across various youth sports. Athletic directors trust us to use our experience and expertise to identify the next generation of quality coaches.

How do we know what makes a good coach? CoachCorner gathers notes about every coach in our network via direct interviews, questionnaires, and references from other applicable experiences when necessary. Have you demonstrated proficiency as a leader in a sport as a player? Have you shown competence in other positions working with young athletes or students? Have you had successful experiences as a teacher, mentor, babysitter, counselor, or role model? There are plenty of qualified coaches out there who do not yet have formal coaching experience but who have demonstrated applicable skills elsewhere.

If you want to get into youth sports coaching, join the CoachCorner network. Build a profile and apply for CoachCorner verification.
