My goal is to help you love coaching and have an incredible impact on your players.  

In this video:

As we develop our players into young leaders, here is a quick tip of what we’ve found to be effective.

We are in no way trying to encourage an aggressive, hard-hitting environment like you see on Friday Night Tykes (love that show). It is our responsibility to create an environment of fun and encouragement. We enjoy lifting up all players on both sides of the ball.

“Great effort on that play”
“Nice pull!”
“Wow that run was incredible.”
“Nice try – keep going”
“How did you get so fast”
“Nice hands Smith”
“Are you kidding me!”

Don’t get me wrong – we are pulling for our team, but we want to create that encouraging environment where all players are involved in the positivity and sportsmanship.

What are you doing to create this environment?
