Every system(or team) desires 5 things: SCARF

Status
Certainty - This takes time for a newer coach.
Autonomy
Relatedness
Fairness

Good places to start

Read books
Attend conferences, talk to other coaches

Critical thinking in the stress of a game

If you have established your guiding principles, it greatly increases your ability to calmly think through and stay focused on what's important

Overfunctioning=Underfunctioning

When one overfunctions, there is a reciprocal reaction of underfunctioning
The best balance for a coach is to be there to be a calm presence in a storm, but not overreact to negative situations that will occur in every game

A child-focused society

If a parent over-focuses on their children, the child is worse off
As a coach- do your coaching well, but think less about it.
Game theory - There is a fear our kid/team will get behind if someone else practices more or plays on more travel teams.
A 2 person relationship is inherently unstable. For parents - it is far easier for them to talk about their kids than it it is to talk about their own relationship.

Connecting with and impacting kids

John works with kids to help them start establishing who they are and identifying their self

The One that Got Away

In John's senior year, he played against a tackle that went on to be an all-pro center. John got worked over pretty bad by this guy, but he learned resilience and knew to focus on process over outcome.

Best borrowed/stolen idea

Relentlessly eradicate hurry from your life
