Coaches must remember that Athletes must be groomed and developed progressively in order to keep the athletes’ interest going. As a coach, it’s so nice to see your athletes doing well when they are older or donning national colours in the near future.
A “win at all costs” attitude shown, especially by a number of certain local & foreign coaches, ignores the development of the athletes. This coaches have never been in an elite athlete shoe nor have seen pain or fame but are giving vigorous workouts meant for adults, in order to garner results and hoping their contracts with schools or individuals will be renewed. These so call coaches failed to realise, that they are killing the athlete’s interest in the sport of athletics at a very early age.
We are simply the BEST team (with 2 former SEA Games medallist and Experienced Coaches) and we emphasise on the “Athletes first, Winning second” philosophy and work gradually towards individual athlete goals.
