As coaches, we are used to stress to a certain degree.
Most of us like the coaching stress when it comes to the on-the-court part of coaching. We could do without the off-the-court stressors though.
What if I told you that you could control and even get rid of most of the off-the-court stress?
It's true and it's something we all can get better at.
So what is it, you ask?
Our ability to be good, quality communicators is directly related to the amount of stress - parent/player meetings, redundant questions, player follow-through, unmet expectations - we endure.
I encourage you to be a better communicator this season.
Start by getting information out earlier and getting your team and parents on the same page.
You'll find this is the first step to creating a culture that players want to be a part of.
