Communications. This is possibly the biggest area of improvement for most coaches. Commit to making this a strength of your team by making great use of all your communications tools.
Let your team – and their parents – know which methods you will be using to communicate schedule changes and updates during the season:
- team or league website
- printed reminders and handouts
- after practice meetings
Whichever methods you choose, stick with them. Strive to keep your players – and their parents – informed all season long. The results in player and family satisfaction will surprise you!
