Who Are We? Creating a Championship Mindset Pt I

Who Are We? Creating a Championship Mindset Pt I.

To deny explosiveness and violence is to deny the nature of football. It is a game that requires its players “have a little nasty in ‘em,” that they relish in physically dominating an opponent. Often, coaches will claim that this is a quality that cannot be taught, that aggression and toughness are traits that are genetically inherent in a human being, or a product of a disturbing home environment. Boston Sports Institute Coaches reject the assumption that any concept or quality cannot be taught. Much in the same way that a strength and conditioning coach with a Renegade understanding of training principles can improve ANY athlete physically, a football coach with an understanding of proper motivation, teaching progression, and personality, can mold any athlete emotionally, intellectually, and socially. Generally speaking, coaches are in the position to do this by virtue of their title. Youth are impressionable and coaches are role models, even bad ones, and there are A LOT of bad ones who teach blind aggression, violence, and uncontrollable rage over resilience, adaptability, and the power of fury controlled. This is counter-intuitive. To become a champion one must first believe that they already have the necessary tools within themselves. Creating this faith is not a simple switch, it is a cultural change, a process that requires dedication and focus in and of itself.

Stay tuned for Pt II.

Coach Q, a.k.a Yann Kumin, is President of Operations for the Boston Institute of Football and Assistant Head Coach for the D1 Malden Catholic Lancers.
