Article: Understand the Season

Ever wish you knew then what you know now? Perhaps experience is the best teacher after all. This article is specifically designed for High School Coaches with an opportunity for a second season playoff en route to a Championship. All of us establish goals each season. Some come from our players, some we share, some we do not share, and they usually come in some type of sequential priority don’t they? Win against our archrival, win our Area or Division, go to the Playoffs, and Win the State… Some might even include improving at each practice or playing at a higher level in each game. Have I been in your locker room?

But in real life Coaches rarely see such a linear pattern to meeting and exceeding their goals.
