I was listening to a Coach on a recent TV Pre-Season Preview and heard "Don't do this, and shortly after, Don't do That!"
1. Coaching is teaching at it's Best! Leave the negative reinforcement to others!
2. Coach what TO do, not what NOT to do. Great coaches use positive imagery to create positive memory connections!
Examples - make the play - get your mind right!
3. Coach with content. Be specific as to what part of the fundamental the player is not getting.
Examples - Face up, move the right foot 6 inches, or eyes on the ball and look it in to the tuckaway!
Note: Figure out what to say to make each athlete perform in the fray!
COACH LIKE YOUR HAIR'S ON FIRE !
