What is a Guest Coach?

Your Role During a 1-hour game:




Gather children together for a 3-4 minute lesson. Then for 10-15 minutes run drills that apply the lesson.

Float around the sidelines to give children advice and encouragement.


Give children 5 minutes to show up before you start your lesson.

Show up 5-10 minutes before the start of the game to get ready.

Additional Instructions:

  1. During your lesson and drills the regular coaches are there to help you. Their job is to get the children to listen to you and follow your instructions.

  2. Keep your lesson to 3-4 minutes. No longer.

  3. Make lesson and drills appropriate to the age group. See below.

  4. Try to involve every child as much as possible in drills. Minimize waiting in lines, maximize ball touches.

  5. Talk with league director about what skill to teach.
