There are coaches to work on strength, endurance, speed, trainers of attack and defense, and the coaches are specific to the mobility and the elongation of the body
The goal of these coaches is to improve the capacity performance of an athlete.

Colleen Hackerfive times Mental Coach Sports of the Olympic Games that now “train your mind” the team of women's hockey in the United States states that:
There is an athlete or a team, the olympic or professional, that you do not use the services and the skills of a Mental Sports Coach.
