Coaching’s Greatest Frustrations
As I’m sure you already know, coaching is full of frustrations. Athletes talking during team chats, turning up late, going through the motions during practice. The list goes on. So, what can we do about it? Or, should we do anything about it at all?
There are methods we can use that can encourage our athletes to show more commitment, give more effort, and so forth. However, the facts are, most of your athletes will never have the same passion for their sport or team as you do.
Is there anything we can do about this, or do we just have to accept it, no matter how much it might frustrate us?
