Student Coaches

I was wondering how many teams have student coaches versus mentor coaches. Our team has a student coach(me). What do the rest of you do?

Re: Student Coaches

Student Coach. First year we had a mentor, it was good in the way that atleast one other person besides a student actually knows what its like to be down there so he understands when things don't go as planned and doesn't get jumpy and ask "why didn't you do this" about everything we do while on the field. I think a student coach is a good idea becuase usually students are more comfotable working with their peers as oppsed to adults when under stress/pressure.

1023 also does not have mentor involvement in alliance meetings before a match. 90% of the time, we go out, seek our alliance members dirver(s), HP, and coach, then have a meeting with them about strategy and what not. The 10% is when they get to us first, aka we're doing a minor repair or what not.

Re: Student Coaches

We have a student coach (me ). Because, on 573 as well as other teams, the coach does a majority of the strategizing, we made the decision based on the fact that the mentors wanted to give the high schoolers a chance to communicate with the other teams and, as a result, learn the negotiation aspects of FIRST.

Re: Student Coaches

Although I started training to be a coach when I was still a student in HS, I am our mentor coach.....always wanted to do it and im glad i finally have an opportunity to...

Its hard to compete for a coaching spot when your coach in HS was Andy Baker 2003 was a nice compromise with the human player technically as a 2nd coach...

Re: Student Coaches

We currently have a student coach(me), but we have had in the past adult mentors coach. I honestly find I work better with other coaches who are students rather then mentors, because it is easier to talk to them then a mentor who could be intimidating etc. Also to me a student coach would be better from the stand point of the drivers, as they are also in the same peer group and allow for an easier time talking over strategies, and what kind of improvements can be made, on either my end or theirs. I have come across a few coaches who were mentors, that would just flat out not listen to a thing I have suggested, most likely because I am a student, and to me students just listen better to each other and accept each others plans and ideas better. Although we do have a drive team mentor who is a college member of the team(Ogre), and he does do strategy with us before matches etc, so we still do have an adult working with us. I just find that this is what works best with my team, and every team structure is different, so what is good for one might not work for others.

Re: Student Coaches

Last year, we used both. This year, the coach button was passed between the mentor (Orr) and the tor-mentor (yours truly).

Re: Student Coaches

Team 116 I believe has always had a student coach. This is a try-out position every year. This year we took a vote to ask if we wanted to have mentors be able to try out and have a chance but the vote came back very strong for keeping it a student-only position.

Re: Student Coaches

We have a student coach - me. Every previous year we've had mentor coaches, but this year we decided to try something new and so far it seems to be working well.
