If you’re a sport coach, why do you need a coaching portfolio?
Here are 7 reasons why you need a coaching portfolio:
• Gives you a reason to follow up after submitting your resume/application.
• Gives primary hiring person more detailed information about you beyond the resume.
• Demonstrates your organizational skills and attention to detail.
• Gives you something to hand out to committee at the interview.
• Helps structure your philosophies/ideas for building a program and developing your staff.
• If you lack experience, provides an opportunity to demonstrate your abilities.
• Prepares you for those “tough” interview questions.
The portfolio should be a direct reflection of you and your philosophies on building a quality athletic program. Even if you are applying for an assistant coaching position, your portfolio should provide a look at how you would build your own program if you were the head coach. Not only is the coaching portfolio a critical tool for the job search process, it is also an invaluable tool for you as a coach–it contains information that you should be using every day with your program, your team, and your coaching staff!
