Abstract: Survey method through evaluative descriptive approach is used in this study, which aims to determine the existence of woodball athletes coaching at student activity units (UKM) UNNES so that it can be used as reference for other regions to build up and produce potential athletes for the region, and further for Indonesia. The results of this study indicate that coaching woodball athletes at UKM UNNES going very well, because it is supported by the research results of students and lecturers in the field of woodball sports, supported by the human resources, and facilities and complete woodball sports equipment. The constraints faced include: (1) program/training schedules often conflict with the lecture schedule of students; (2) lack of coaching funds to follow the event and funds to organize events; (3) athletes/students sometimes took too long dispensation (permit college) while following the championship (so that athletes got mind burden for not following the lecture); (4) lack of attention and participation of universities in Semarang, Central Java, particularly those with sports studies program to jointly develop the woodball sport; and (5) starting early 2018 woodball permanent field area cannot be used in full (athletes began to fret about finding a place to practice).
