Thinking of coaching in the near future. I’ve been coached before but, over a decade ago. Talking to a national track champ buddy today I asked him what he paid and while he didn’t answer directly he said his coach demands up to $1000USD/month. Not planning on doing that and simply defining the high end. he thought a year minimum would be needed and thought an older coach who understands the decline in older athletes endocrine systems would be beneficial but, not necessary.
Later that day I stopped by and chatted with another former national master champ buddy who and told him I was thinking of coaching with Frank Overton who charges around $479USD/month. He thought that was really high. To me this is high but, perhaps represents the middle. He thought a year minimum and age didn’t matter
Other coaches who are under Frank charge $174USD/month. This would probably represent the lower end.
So my questions are:
- How much do you pay for coaching?
- Minimum time you think is needed to be coached?
- As a 50+ AGer do you feel a coach who is older would be better than a younger coach?
