Do Your Job, Fun will Follow

 
Don't worry about making things fun - it's a byproduct of these success makers.
 
1. Caring that players improve is the best thing coaches can do for players, even beyond making it fun for them. That begins by showing enthusiasm, encouragement, and belief that players can get it, no matter how discouraged players get.
 
2. Patience. Expecting players to understand and be able to perform everything correctly is an unrealistic expectation. Caution players and parents that immediate improvement is rare, but reaching their long-term goal is always possible.
 
3. Process to achieve. The next step is helping players understand the necessity of a solid work ethic. Define success as the work itself, not the results.
 
Remember, fun is the result of teaching the right way – it doesn’t have to be forced upon athletes.
