Who Are We? Creating a Championship Mindset Pt II

Who Are We? Creating a Championship Mindset Pt II

In order for your team to function on a championship level your players HAVE to trust you. This trust rests on two separate planes. Firstly (and obviously) you’ve got to know your football, a process that involves constantly learning about schemes, drills, and techniques, finding a system and method that works for you and one that works period. If you’re unable to put your players in a position to succeed, they will never believe in you. More importantly however, this trust arises out of your players’ belief that you care about them on a level that transcends sport. In order for them to trust you they have to know that you care about them on a purely human level, regardless of their triumphs and failures on the gridiron. As a coach, you HAVE to get to know your kids, all of them, not just the ones who start for you. You must make a concerned and genuine effort to ask questions and more importantly, listen to the responses. What is your player’s home life like? What does he do when he’s not in school? Is he a strong student? What kind of music does he listen to? Does he read? How does he react to adverse situations? You need to offer advice and courses of actions that can help your player solve the problems of adolescence. It is a sad truth that in today’s society, many young men lack a positive adult male to help them navigate a world only beginning to confront them with adult temptations and responsibilities. Becoming this role model and demonstrating concern for the growth of your players as human beings is not only of tremendous benefit to your players, it also provides the foundation for creating a championship mindset within them.
