We’ve all had that one player who just HAS to test the limits. We know it’s only natural, but it can definitely test us as coaches. Whether it’s your star running back showing up late consistently or a youth player whose parents just can’t seem to get them to practice on time, we all have to have a plan in place to ensure the discipline of the team doesn’t falter due to our “problem child”.
In this episode Joe, Daniel, and guests Antoine Smith and Bill Weiss share years of combined wisdom on dealing with the situations above and many more that you may have had already or need to have a plan for in the future.
Regardless of the record, history, or size of your team, something all coaches have to deal with is parents. Some can be jet fuel for your system, and some can feel like an anchor dragging you down. But, parent involvement is a currency that every team needs to help maximize their potential in the fall.
On this episode Joe and Daniel are joined by Coach Rick Stewart to discuss some successful ways to communicate with parents, how to get to know them, increase involvement, and what to do if you have a parent already going sour.
On this episode we’re talking to Dale Baskett, a renowned speed coach with over 40 years of speed training experience in the NFL, MLB, and numerous collegiate and high school powerhouse schools, about the intricacies of training speed throughout the year, how little time it can really take away from you, and some mistakes of guys who are trying to do it on their own. Dale is a big part of our “If you don’t know, hire an expert” philosophy.
