Teaching Tips – to learn how to sign coach in ASL
- Watch a favorite pro sports team play a game on television (or live!) and have fun picking out when the coach can be seen. Be sure to use the sign!
- Make playground games educational (occasionally – there’s value in free play too!) by assigning rolls. One child can be the coach and can practice encouraging and directing their peers in a positive manner and then switch rolls.
Coach. Tap your fingers on your shoulder. Coach! Because the coach is in charge. Sign coach.
