Why Do I Need A Coach?
The real answer is, you don't. But...
Many people are just naturally gifted. Be it the 14 year old computer whiz, the prodigal mathematician or the sous chef with an amazing palette. They have recognized their shortcomings and succeeded on their integrity and given skills.
Now ask an Olympian why they have a coach. If you are the fastest person in the world what effect does having a coach help you?
This answer is as simple as the first one, just longer.
In relation to sports, the role of the coach is to create the right conditions for learning to happen and to find ways of motivating the athletes. Most athletes are already motivated and therefore the task is to maintain that motivation and to generate excitement and enthusiasm.
Aid athletes with the preparation of training programs
Communicate effectively with the athletes
Assist in the development of new skills
Use evaluation methods to monitor training progress
Directly critique performance
Set realistic goals
Therefore, you can see that coaching is a very difficult task and requires a special type of person. You may not perceive skydiving as a sport yet but don't tell that to the individuals and teams that train for years to become the best in their province, their country and the ultimate goal, the best in the world.
