Yes it’s on! So excited to be starting the season and training. Despite being overcast and rainy I had a fine turnout last night and the best part was that despite a reputation they were attentive, respectful, and a hardworking group. I asked them in the beginning to respect me and each other, that during the discussions and training if they focused they would improve and they delivered along with lots of laughter.
I am sure soon enough they will be bored of my repetitive comments calling for simplicity and movement however I am confident also that they will begin to think that without my prodding and that is the goal. I hope all of you players, parents, coaches, and clubs have a fantastic fall season!
Set the tone early and model respect to the kids and they will likely give it right back.
