Team Attitude Begins With You - Coaching Tips

 
Remember, the team attitude begins with yours. The great Bill Walsh said, “If you want your athletes to model the passion, commitment, and work ethic to be successful, you must demonstrate it yourself in everything you do.” The words I like the most in that line are the last, in everything you do. It implies being a role model away from the fields as well as on them.
 
Some of the coaching ways to create the right attitude for athletes and parents to see are:
 
 Preparing the right way before the season.
 Teaching to a comfortable level for every player.
 Competing to win but in a way that displays sportsmanship and class.
 Being a great example after wins and losses.
 Showing others that being a winner is most necessary off the fields in everyday life.
