Author(s): Ravi Bhushan, Prashant S. Homkar, Shivakumar N Revashetty, Dr. Pravin Shiledar
Abstract: Individuals hired typically in high school and junior high school health and physical education positions are asked and/or required to coach a sport or more than one sport a year. Many of these individuals are drawn to physical activity and are excited to teach and/or coach. Some see themselves more as teachers and some more as coaches. The conflict to perform both roles can cause conflict, either with alliances to one versus the other, or in finding the time and energy to perform both tasks well.
