This is my first year back coaching after taking some time off to further my education. During one of the periods, I am in charge of the off-season. There is no kind of structure as far as what should be done during this off- season time. The other coaches are off working with this season's athletes, so it's pretty much me and 60 kids.

anon Thanks for your responses. The administration has shorted us some coaches during that period because they need them in the classroom teaching. Our coordinator has complained to the ath. director about this. Not sure if anything can be done this year, but I am sure they will back us up next year when it comes to scheduling. I am just going to stick ...See More

cjode covered the issue with admin. I will bet that the first time some kid gets in trouble or hurt because he or she was out of eyesight or earshot of a coach you will get more help in there.....even if it is just another teacher from who they "buy" their conference period.

You have a good attitude about not caring whether you are liked by the ...See More
