Profiling is a great coaching tool to develop an overview of a player as an individual and as a sports person.  It also assists in identifying strengths and weaknesses.

 

A player profile can be as basic or as detailed as required to develop a picture and understanding of the player that is appropriate to their age and level. You should undertake player profiling at the start of each season, to begin with a good level of knowledge of each of your players.

 

A player profile can include:

 

  • Personal details, including emergency contact information
  • Physical attributes and parameters
  • General health, illnesses, and allergies
  • Injury screening (past and present)
  • Personality traits and coachability
  • Sporting profile (sports played, including positions if applicable, and sport-specific skills).
