As coaches, we have to know and understand which struggles really matter.

Struggle is age appropriate.

Struggle builds our resiliency tank.
- If you continue to bail your athlete or children out, they will lose the ability to solve problems their own as they get older.

There has to be a balance between bailing them out and making them step up to the plate.

Allowing Athletes to Struggle
- We continue to delay the consequence of bad habits. 

- Create environments where kids learn implicitly. 

- We’ve robbed kids of the ability to just figure things out! 

- Teaching kids how to talk and walk we don’t put them through “classes”. 

- They aren’t uncoachable, they just don’t know how to learn.

Advice for College Coaches
- Look for it in your recruits. 

- You need to know your standards and you better not waver. 

- Let people experience the consequence quickly. 

- A coaching staff who was 100% in alignment and ready to back you.

We'd love to hear from you!
