October 10, 2003, Newsletter Issue #131: OUTWORK YOUR OPPONENTS

Tip of the Week

Coaching is very time consuming, so one of the best skills that you can acquire early in your career is time management. Determine your priorities and devote the time necessary to them before you move on. Whether it is practice time, practice preparation (often overlooked), scouting, film breakdown, game preparation, or promoting your program get to work. Hire good assistants and put them all to work. Give everyone different responsibilities so there is an "expert" in each area. Get others involved and delegate duties. Coaches expect players to put in time outside of practice to improve their game. Coaches should work as hard as they expect their players to work, and the players will return the favor.
