Each player has their own, individually defined, role in the team. They are also different individuals, with their own strengths and weaknesses. The same applies for playing. The coach’s job is to help the player identify their own strengths and areas of improvement. Different playing styles and roles in the team also require the player to have different qualities that he or she should be aware of.

Different self-evaluation methods can be used as a tool in the development process of player`s game. With these assessments, the coach gets important information about how the player sees him or herself, and what are the strengths and weaknesses. At the same time, the player’s reflection skills develop and they learn to evaluate their own performance, which also changes the role of the coach. To identify the current situation, the coach can guide the player to set realistic goals. Different self-assessments can also be used as a tool in discussions between the player and the coach.
