Basketball Coach Resume Format

By | September 7, 2011

Basketball coaches are highly responsible for mapping the success of a basketball team.  To be able to accomplish this, they must have excellent knowledge and background on the principles and techniques of the basketball sport.  They are the main source of advice and training programs of the athletes and must thereby be able to commit themselves to fully understand the character of each athlete.  Basketball coaches must have the ability to create on court strategies for defence and offense tactics and identify the athlete to execute the plan.  Basketball coaches should also be kept abreast of the events and activities of the basketball arena locally and internationally and identify competitions that their team can join without putting the team in a risky position.
