Being Coachable vs. Being Uncoachable

Our recruiting experts give some examples of what being coachable and uncoachable looks like to college coaches.

Coachable
• You are willing to learn and improve
• You actively listen to constructive criticism from coaches and apply that feedback in practice and competitions
• You are open-minded and willing to make changes that will improve your game
• You understand that constructive criticism is meant to help you improve and not to be taken personally
Uncoachable
• You pout, eye roll, or complain when you disagree with direction or criticism from coaches
• You dismiss criticism from coaches and don’t apply the feedback
• You are close-minded and unwilling to make changes to improve your game
• You take criticism personally
