(English) Some records that coaches should keep are:

  • a list of players that have trialled for the team;
  • any assessment that the coach made of players relative to the selection criteria;
  • a record of attendance at practice and games;
  • any incidents that have occurred at practice or in a game (e.g. a player hurting their ankle in a rebounding situation, a confrontation between two players);
  • practice plans, with any notes or reflections about the practice;
  • any correspondence between the coach and players or their parents;
  • notes on the performance of players and their development during the season;
  • pre-game objectives and goals and notes made during the game.

Often the simplest way to keep these records is in a diary. Coaches may also choose to keep the records electronically and there are a number of programs that can assist with such record keeping.
