There are websites out there that help us coaches to see the stats of our students! Such as their progress, KD, scores, etc… I personally use them to see how is my student doing, and then I’ll contact them to congrats them on their progress or give them more tips to improve based on those stats!
When I give my students a practice routine, I also set goals for them to achieve, now if they achieve it, they immediately know that they are progressing!
I give them the tools necessary for their progress and leave my discord available for questions they might have in case they find difficulties applying the main points of the coaching session. I sometimes get messages saying that they ranked up and thanking me, and sometimes messages saying that they still struggle with x thing, in that case, I try my best to understand why they’re not achieving it and to explain how they can change that.
If I’m coaching a returning student, I check their tracker again and see if they have applied at least the main points of the session so we can keep making progress.
