Practice Length

Practices should rarely, if ever, last longer than two hours. Players have a difficult time maintaining focus and effort beyond that time. Do not fall into the “lottle” principle. You know, if a little is good, then a “lottle” must be better. By going longer, you may end up accomplishing less. As the season progresses, the length of practice should get shorter in order to stay fresh. Be respectful of players' time. If you want them to respect your starting time, it's important that you respect the finishing time.
