Successful coaching consists of creating a positive, student-athlete centered environment that develops and encourages character qualities such as honesty, discipline and hard work. The art of coaching is the ability to teach the technical and strategic aspects of the game, while helping players develop the physical skill set to compete at a high level. Game knowledge, fundamentals, and strength and conditioning, all play vital roles in a player’s development and should be emphasized throughout the program. Player’s individual talents should be utilized to the maximum capability within a team structure. Let the measure of success be not only the number of wins in a season, but the percentage of goals achieved individually and collectively as a program.
