At the beginning of each season, exercises or other cleansing periods for the team, coaches usually set some kind of goal, though it is often noticeable. This causes players to deceive, as they can not always determine what they are working on. This little lesson is designed to show the importance of creating clear and well-defined goals that each player, trainer and parent knows and understand so that everyone can work together to achieve them.
Set goals for each exercise and competition
Coaches know that if players understand what they're going to do then they'll probably do well and do it fast. The goal helps to create this state of clear expectations by ruling out what is practicing or playing and helping the players to focus on achieving the goal.
For this reason, coaches should set short goals for each exercise and contest. These restrictions should be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Accurate, Fair and Timely.
Specifically, the goal should be accurate, so everyone knows exactly what to do. Measurable means that there is a way to determine if the goal has been reached or not. Achievable means that the goal is not too difficult or too easy for the team. Reason means there is a clear possibility that work and work goals can be achieved. In a timely manner, the goal has time in relation to what time should be achieved.
By this time, players may create changed personal goals. The goal of the team should be wide enough for all players to find, but the individual goals must be specific and unique for each player. For example, the team goal could be: "Improve team accuracy by 20% in March." However, individual goals could be: "Add my downgrade to 75% accuracy in March." This helps players see the big goals and how their individual goals fit into them.
As a head coach, it is also your responsibility to set goals with a coach. Your coaches should have goals for themselves and their team, as have passed goals. Work with your staff to develop these goals, using the same guidelines and principles as defined below for coaches for use with players. This takes care of the training and shows you what is happening every day in practice.
Review and change goals throughout the season
While goals can be a good idea at the beginning of the season, it is not always a good idea to keep the goal around what appears. Changes in team structure, assistants and exercise styles all affect the ability of the team to achieve the goal.
Throughout the year you should meet coaches and players to discuss and change goals as needed. This applies to both individual and group goals.
For group goals, call all and show a prominent list of goals. Go through each and every one to discuss the following questions:
- Is this goal still appropriate for our team? Why or why not?
- Are we on track to achieve this goal? What have we done well with? Where to do we need to improve?
- How challenging is this goal? Are we meeting it too easily? If so, what can we do to continue to challenge us? If not, what can we do to make the goal challenging but still achievable?
- Does this goal improve our team? If not, what can we do to rewrite it or make it more accurate?
Allow all opportunities to speak at this time and share opinions about specific goals or goals in general. Players can find themselves out at this time if they think they are not reaching a goal, so be prepared for moderate discussion of players & # 39; individual talent. For some, the goal is easy, because they are talented and more likely to achieve their goals without much difficulty. For others, a target group is difficult time because it requires constant work and fear of not reaching goal.
