The Heart of Excellence – A Coach’s Toolkit and Guide for Creating a Sports Team Quality Plan

Abstract: This is a guide for coaches to help in the planning, processing, and execution of a quality system for sporting activities.

It is in a workbook-style format so you can write in or copy it as you consider your game plan for before, during, and after the season. There are many resources available to coaches to help them develop sections of their quality plan.

This guide is meant to pull it all together and give you the structure for those resources. It also introduces a few new tools here that may be very helpful.

The outcome of a quality program is simple—meet all standards with evidence. These standards are not just in terms of wins and losses, but of league, parent, athlete, organization, and most importantly—your standards. By planning for and determining your forms of evidence up front, you can prepare yourself for less stress through the season.

This is your vision, your standard, and your way of “doing it right.”
