The Results are In! In an effort to get student and parent input on the selection of the best athletic coaches possible, a survey was sent to all students and parents in grades 6-12 on the coaching qualities they deem most important for the Port Jefferson student-athletes. The survey provided eight examples of coaching qualities for respondents to select from. Respondents also had an opportunity to list coaching qualities of their own. Of the 114 responses, there were five coaching qualities that were most favorable (see graphic). Athletic Director Adam Sherrard said, “There are so many important aspects of coaching, it is important to get as many different perspectives as possible when hiring a new coach. Combining the knowledge of the teachers, staff and administrators on the interviewing committees with the preferences of students and parents will help us select coaches who will have a positive physical, social and emotional impact on our student athletes.”
