It is important for athletes to establish healthy and progressive training practices that actually helps them improve. The athletic coaches job is to keep the athlete from overworking and then falling off all together. A good athletic coach is going to make sure that training days are balanced so consistency is possible (Wright 2014). Another major benefit of having a coach is that they can hold you accountable. Sometimes it helps to know that you have someone other than yourself to make proud. Working closely with a coach and taking head to the instruction given can motivate athletes to reach new heights because they refuse to let themselves down or anyone else down (Staff 2016).
