Some parents and kids like fun coaches who aren't too strict.
Ooh, I can attest to this. When my DD was new and I stuck around for her rec class, I would continually strike up conversations with other rec parents. Some would remark/complain Coach A was 'too serious' or 'too tough' and wanted Coach B. While the next parent would complain Coach B was "too laid back" and "only about fun, a waste of my money" and would want to switch to Coach A. Some parents were downright vocally upset about the coaching style (on both sides!). Something for everyone, though! Luckily, our gym is happy to switch you to the Rec coach you would like, but the difference in perception is vast between different parents. Just an anecdote.
(For the record, I was happy with Coach A - the serious one, tee hee).
