Improving the relationship between Coaches and Fitness staff

As part of my self-development I observe and research many teams and speak to their coaches. Many of them have a general understanding of how importance fitness of their athletes is, but if they do have fitness staff arent exactly sure what they can do and if they dont have any, rely on others outside the club to be responsible for it.

I decided to conduct a survey to head coaches regarding fitness staff, what their roles, expectations and value is perceived as. If you have not completed it, please do so here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z75JPQB
