See your physician regularly especially if you do

See your physician regularly, especially if you do punch-mitt style training with your boxers. Be sure to wear a mouth guard when holding mitts or especially in a "Coach sparring" session. Kinesio Taping can help you function with a troublesome elbow, knee, or other nagging injury. A chiropractor may be able to supply this care, and certainly can adjust your elbows, wrists, knees, and neck if they can't tape the injury. See APPENDIX F for Coach’s Prehab Exercise Examples

Page 9 Develop a Personal Vision Purpose Statement A purpose statement can be the lighthouse beacon on the other side of a rocky sea. When everything is good, everything is good. Sometimes when results aren’t going to way you planned or expected, coaching can seem like a burden. A Coach’s Purpose Statement can be a daily reminder as to why you do what you do, what you are good at, and a focus on what kind of athlete you prefer to work with. Fill in the blanks on the sample purpose statement and use that as a template to create your own purpose statement (see the Example below *): My name is, _(A) Coach Chad _, and I (B) teach boxing in a manner of Co-operatvive Coaching __. I am an expert in/my assets are Communication Skills __, Skill Analysis/Repair __, Mitt Work , and specialize in College Boxing , working with young adults . I teach boxing because I love the sport . A. Name B. Trainer, teacher, Corner, Cutman C. What are my best skills (what works for me, what makes me unique)? Communication Skills / Mitt Work / Experience / Skill Analysis/Repair Knowledge / Ring Control / Leadership / Network/Coach Relations D. My specialty? College Boxing / Fitness /recreational / Competitive amateur / Youth fitness / Prep / Youth / Junior / Senior / Traditional West Coast Boxing Elite / Counter Punching / Master E. Why coach boxing? Give back to community / I’m Good at it / I love of the sport / etc… F. How do I teach? Authoritarian (coach makes all decisions; creates discipline and structure for boxer) Co-operative (coach makes decisions based on boxer suggestions; allows independent growth of boxer) Casual (coach has small input; develops boxer’s thinking skills but may slow technical/physical aspects) G. Who do I enjoy coaching the most? (You can be specific or general) Young Adults / Seniors / Middle aged Professionals / Teenagers Recreational / Boys / Girls / Children / Men / Women

Page 10 THE COACH-PARENT/VOLUNTEER RELATIONSHIP Parents and other volunteers can be an extraordinary asset to any athletic team. The more peripheral duties a coaching staff can delegate to support assistants, the more time and energy the coaches have to focus on the safety and development of the team. Boxing is primarily an individual sport and it may be a challenge for a coach to delegate when he/she is used to doing all the work themselves. The investment of setting a structure will pay off in the end. Volunteers can be family members, outside professionals/interns, or others from the community that would like to lend service.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
