Coaches are the backbone of athletics. In the eyes of the athlete, the coach has many roles such as being the disciplinarian, role model, leader, psychologist, friend, parent substitute, and sometimes the life management advisor. However, the coach as the professional has other roles such as manager, teacher, coordinator, recruiter, trainer, fund raiser, public relations person, strategist, and tactician. Coaches pull in various disciplines and teams to work synergistically to yield an effective and efficient team of athletes.
