If you find that your child has an aptitude for a particular sport, you may want to hire a sports
coach. Your aim should be to find an excellent sports coach to inspire and mentor your child.
When you are looking for a sports coach, look for one who has the following qualities:
Knowledge of the Sport
The sports coach should have the knowledge of the sport that your child wants to pursue. Such
a coach will be well-versed in the rules, strategies and tactics that can elevate your child’s
ability. It will allow your child to work with the coach and come up with a game plan if there is a
Outstanding Communication Skills
A coach should also be able to convey their thoughts and explain to your child why each
training session is a must. A good coach should have the time and listening skills to listen to
what your child has to say, especially if they are going through a stressful time in school or
personal life. The coach should be able to understand the verbal and non-verbal gestures of
your child.
Help in Setting Goals
A knowledgeable coach, who is concerned about the performance of his students, will always
work with them to set realistic short-term and long-term goals. Goal-setting is essential as the
training for the sport will depend on it. With the help of training and workouts, your child will
be able to accomplish those goals and perform well in their chosen sport.
Provide Honest Feedback
When you choose an outstanding coach, not only will your child excel in their chosen sport but
will receive constant feedback about their performance, training, and workouts. Whether your
child is into athletics, tennis, football, or swimming, they require feedback to improve. A good
coach will never hesitate to point out faults and mistakes and also give the child tips and tricks
to overcome or avoid them.
Ensure Balance in Your Child’s Life
Even though your child may love sports, there will be days when they will not want to practice
or train. Hence, it is essential to collaborate with a sports coach, who believes in maintaining
the right balance between family, social life, studies, and sports. You need a coach, who
understands your lifestyle and can adapt the schedule to suit it. That will make you comfortable
as a parent and allow your child to train and enjoy sports without pressure.
Motivate Your Child
Whether the sport is a hobby or your child is good enough to become a professional, they
require a sports coach who will motivate and instill confidence in them. Training is important
but without confidence and motivation, your child will never reach their potential. The coach you select should be able to inspire your child to get out of their comfort zone and push
themselves to the limit.
These are some of the qualities you should be looking for when you want to select a sports
coach for your little one. A good coach will be a hard taskmaster when required and gentle
when the need arises. He will also teach them the meaning of discipline and sportsmanship.

Here are some sample reviews from parents, to help you to share your own experiences:

Best classes for mathematics in Erandwane/Kothrud area. Limited kids per batch and give personal attention. We had a very good experience. My daughter is happy with teaching by ***** teacher.

Very engaging and fun filled sessions for the kids .My 8 year old throughly enjoyed all the sessions. Kids get a platform to express their views on various topics. Suggestion is to make this workshop extended from 1 month to 2 months or more.

My child has made excellent growth. The teacher gives attention to every child adequately and my child is very eager to attend the classes. And the teacher also has excellent skills in art.

We have seen ***** school growing from a pretty new school to a developed school in last four years. They focus lot on academics, extra curricular  actives and lot more.  They embed a lot of fun activities with academics which makes kids picks the basics as well as advance topics pretty well.  Teachers are attentive and they provide a very elaborated feedback about the child on quarterly basis. In short it's fairly a good option for kids for their overall growth.

Highly mismanaged branch of *****. Poor planning. No proper communication with parents. Teacher retention is very low. Good teachers gets transferred to other centres. In past 3-4 years 3 principal changed. Everything they do is for name sake. Workshops/ seminars are more of a sales  pitches. 10% return of value for your money.
