What are the roles of the FCA “Character Coaches”?
Character Coaches could take on a number of different roles, but all of them stem from the role of a servant-leader. Here are some other common roles:
- Lead and coordinate pre-game devotions.
- Provide personal care to players, coaches and support staff.
- Alert the coach to critical issues that could affect his or her program.
- Be available and equipped at all times to help in crisis situations.
- Provide wisdom and resources for character development.
- Pray for, encourage and exhort players, coaches, coaches’ families and support staff.
