You might not think you can learn much from a soccer guy. We're football coaches.
Once you listen to my interview with Coach John O'Sullivan today, you'll realize you were wrong. There's a lot to learn.
Of course, John O'Sullivan is much more than a soccer coach. John's website at Changing The Game Project website will tell you that quickly.
He is a best selling author and speaker on how coaches and parents can make our sport - any sport - a great experience for the people that matter.
Who matters? The players, of course.
We lose sight of that. Adults ruin everything.
I met John about a year ago. He has studied the single topic that matters the most. How to get your players to perform their best.
Schemes don't matter. X's and O's don't matter. Not when your kids are not giving their all. Not when they don't love to play the game.
That's what John is all about.
In the interview we talk about some really important topics including...
You'll never eliminate all of the problems, of course. Humans do not allow for problem-free environments.
But you can take some serious steps to eliminate the issues.
In this episode, we also talk about the upcoming conference on changing your team's culture, July 8-10, 2016 in Boulder, CO. Click here for more information

Coaches like to talk about empowering your players. But when is the right time? What should they have power over?
In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, we're looking at how much pull your kids should have in the decisions we make.
Can they decide when practice starts? When it ends?
Should you let your players pick team captains?
Do players get to decide where they're going to play?
How much input should your players have in play calling decisions?
Do the players have any input in playing time?
Can your kids help you decide what to do in the weight room?
How much should you listen to your players regarding injuries?
And do your players get to have a say in the design of your playbook?
I'll go over each of these topics and how you should handle player's input on each.
RPO's are the hot topic at clinics all over the country this year. But almost everyone is talking using run-pass options from a Spread formation.
So we're bringing in Coach Justin Dottavio for a little JDFB Insider exclusive Web Clinic to talk RPO's in his Pistol Wing-T Offense. Something a little different.
Coach Dottavio is the Head Football Coach, among other titles, at Cornerstone Charter Academy in Belle Isle, Florida.
At a small school, you need to find the offense that fits your players. Justin and his staff came to the Pistol Wing-T Offense. Then they added in to RPOs.
We also talk about the defense, the special teams, and Wrestlemania. Important topics.
