Teach Work Ehtic

Sports coaching tips of the day.
 
Seeing the success people achieve when they work hard is a lesson you want kids to learn.
I never fail to tell my players this story. Milwaukee Brewers manager, Dave Bristol, made this announcement after a game. “There’ll be two buses leaving the hotel for the park tomorrow. The two o’clock bus will be for those of you who need a little extra work. The empty bus will leave at five o’clock.” He facetiously but honestly summed up which players need to practice more – everyone.
Coaches must teach the value of a good work ethic to their team. That process begins with displaying it with their coaching. At some point in their lives, they will understand how success and hard work go hand in hand. Coaches should:
• Be the first to arrive at practices, along with being organized and ready when everyone arrives, when possible.
• Stay in engaged the whole season and do not slack off with helping kids improve.
• Point out stories of the work ethic of accomplished athletes in the news. Remind them that there are no shortcuts to success, even for the most talented of players.
 
At some point in their lives. kids will remember your example and stories and understand that success and hard work go hand in hand.
 
Be the Best!
