WELCOME TO THE CLC NATIONAL LIGHTSABER ATHLETIC SPORT LEAGUE...
What It Takes To Be A CLC Coach...
Many Coaches preach ethics to their athletes, when often the best way to transfer these values is when the athlete can observe it in their own Coach’s deeds. Ethical behavior and principles cannot be forced upon someone in a short time; it must be cultivated with leadership bringing about a long-term change in thinking and lifestyle. It should be the goal of any Coach to develop not only great athletes of their sport, but also people of high upstanding character.
As a coach, the easiest thing to teach are the physical aspects, as most good Coaches can perform and athletes can imitate. It is much more challenging to be able to provide athletes with a living model of high ethics and upstanding integrity, both inside and outside of the class, over a long period of time.
A good Coach displays good ethics by conducting themselves in a professional and appropriate manner at all times;
They are adequately skilled, knowledgeable and qualified to teach;
Respect the rights, qualities and abilities of each student;
Teach techniques which are legitimate and safe to practice;
Knows the limitations of their athletes and themselves;
Avoid unnecessary physical contact with any student; Honest and fair in all dealings with students;
Ensures all services advertised and paid for are actually delivered;
Adopt honest, fair and transparent business practices; Are always consistent towards all athletes;
And above all teach and implement the fundamentals of S.A.B.E.R.
NOTE: Each Coach Rank Is Repeated Per Individual Form. Coaches Must Wear The Appropriate Sash Which Accurately Represents The Form Of The tribe They Are Coaching.
If Their Tribe Represents Multiple Forms Then The Coach Must Wear The Sash Which Represents The Highest Form Presented Within Their Tribe.
Coaches Are Not Permitted To Wear A Sash Which Represent A Form That They Are Not Ranked In.
