1ST HALF: LESSONS FROM MENTORS

It is all about the game – not the result

It is about the effort – not the playing time

90% of the time coaching is difficult – there is no point in hiding it

 

HALFTIME – THE KEY POINTS TO HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY

HABIT:  I make sure I go for a run every day

QUOTE:  As the challenge escalates, the need for the team elevates – Unknown

MEASURING STICK:  My motivation is doing something that has never been done before

 

2nd HALF: OVERCOMING FAILURE

I made a team selection with poor communication – I won the game but lost the team

We are going to have failures but we need to evaluate those failures

My personal relationships are not afraid to define reality for me

We are not exposing our youth to disappointment.

They are playing far too many games.

We don’t provide feedback systems.

We need to teach personal development along with sports development.

 

IN THE LOCKER ROOM  

AH-HA MOMENT:  Go out and watch others work – you think you know what you are doing until you watch others. There is so much out there to learn, to get better get exposed to the teaching of others.

NEED TO KNOW TO GROW:  Coaches and teachers have a huge role with our kids. We need to teach personal development along with sports development.  We need to be aware of who are we exposing our players to.
