Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts, cruising social media and any other continuing ed.
- Something to think about as pre-season camps have started or are starting soon. “For every substance, small doses stimulate, moderate doses inhibit, large doses kill.” – Hugo Schulz (1888)
- Brett Bartholomew said something along the lines of biggest measure of intelligence is the ability to change, which I thought was interesting considering the field we are both in. Being in this field for a while now, its clear to me that the great coaches are continually changing/adapting to the times while the not-so-great coaches seem to be implementing the same program they were implementing 10-15+ years ago.
- Effective coaching is not simply demanding that players work hard, but rather creating environments where players want to do it for each other. – Gary Curneen (@GaryCurneen on twitter).
- The #1 factor determining whether a training program will work or not is belief. If you don’t have buy-in, even if the training is perfect, it’s not going to work. – Steve Magness (@SteveMagness on twitter).
