I want to celebrate and thank Key5 Member Nelson Handel for taking the time to have a one-on-one Zoom conference with me. He got me, a coach who is set in his ways, to realize that it was not the players over thought the Read and React , but it was my training that didn’t prepare them.
He reminded me that this was my first year. Most importantly, he asked me the right questions to make me realize that my players are athletic and that I don’t need to replace my system, just change the way I teach it. He made me realize that it’s not the players that struggled during the games, it was what I taught them that was struggling.
Thanks Nelson for helping me see beyond the loses but helped me see the potential in my players.
Not sure if this is the correct place for this, but I also want to celebrate a Key 5 member @Aaron Hedman! I really appreciate your support, encouragement and desire to share ideas regarding our teams. I’ve enjoyed our discussions about building culture, developing leaders, and organizing practice and they’ve inspired me a ton.
Thanks for being a great example of a servant leader! Can’t wait to follow you guys this season!
