If you are spending time talking to others in your gym during practice, no question your kids notice. From an Athletic article about Dan Hurley:

When Fr. Leahy would walk over to the gym, he quickly learned Dan wouldn’t speak with him during practice. Instead, he’d send an assistant over to deal with the headmaster and that was just fine by Fr. Leahy. “You knew real fast that he was a great coach,” Fr. Leahy says. “If you’re the boss and they’re working for you, when you go and visit a classroom, if the teacher wants to talk to you in the middle of class, you better start looking for another teacher. If you go into a great teacher’s classroom, even if you’re the boss, they’ll ignore you because what’s important to them is teaching these kids.”
