The Importance of Clear Expectations for PlayersMar 19, 2023
Players often have high expectations of themselves, especially when it comes to playing time. They may believe that their hard work and dedication will automatically lead to more playing time. However, it's important to help your players understand that playing time is not just based on individual effort, but also on team needs, opponent matchups, and other factors. As a coach, you can help your players set realistic expectations and goals for themselves, and communicate with them regularly about their progress and feedback. By setting clear expectations, you can help your players focus on their growth and development, rather than just their playing time.
