    Default Anyone Coaching a Sport?

    I know a lot of Japanese teachers also coach a sport. Anyone end up doing this? Maybe assisting? If so, what? How's it going? Just wondering.

    I am working with the English Drama. Not a sport...but, an activity. It's going well, but we only rehearse once a week, and I think that is ridiculous.

    Not really coaching but I'm sort of quasi-assisting the basketball club at one of the JHS I go to. This really amounts to nothing more than doing a few drills with them and a scrimmage game here and there. I also help the few kids with technique and drilling which is entertaining until I realize I can't really explain ANYTHING about basketball in Japanese. Thank goodness they use a good spattering of English-katakanafied words.

    I was wondering if ALT's would be included like this. I was on the Fencing Team in college, and thought a high school might be interested in this as a club sport...

    hey
    in most cases if you coach a sport you will have to attend matches on saturdays, so just check that before you offer ,if you want your weekends free
