I’d be doing my athletes a disservice if I let up on who I am as a coach and teacher. I am in a state of constantly teaching the game. I don’t give my players chances to foul up if I can keep their minds on the next steps ahead during a game. They will learn by watching me use them as chess pieces until they can learn every move on their own, and WHEN to use those moves. Then they will be ready to make snap decisions on the field with speed, in any situation. A good coach does not let his players fail on their own until they are fully trained and understand the concepts, methods and execution behind each play. Each member of the team has to be fully invested into learning and executing.
