"Coaches who sketch out on a board a dozen dollars, winners enter into their players and are motivated." – Lombardi Vince
One of the biggest challenges facing all levels of basketball coaches is the challenge of being focused, motivated to play and the strongest game. The following 10 tried and true tips to motivate the team.1. Set a precedent on the first day of the exercise. From the very beginning, creating our expectations is the best way to not only shape your role within your team, but also to let your player know what coach he will be.
For example: As soon as the first practice begins and the players grind the blow and call them to the center of the gym. If they do not run, they run there and there. After they leave, blow the whistle again. This time, all players will be eager to sprint. And more importantly, they pay full attention to the rest of the year.
2. Show players how much they count. Probably the most effective way for players to work hard for you and tell them to care for them. There is an interest in their lives outside of basketball. Get acquainted with players as individuals. Spend time talking to them individually. It does not take hours; in a few minutes he will do the trick. The point is to tell them they are important to you on the basketball court. Model motivation in all your actions. Have fun, stay positive, and let the players know what is waiting for them right away. Players will take whatever you say and do and respond accordingly. Write down your philosophy that players know what to expect and what to look for.
For example: If you tell players that the best bouncing starts, then all of the players try to become good bouncers. With your sayings and actions you told them that rebounding is important to you.
This is all about what you've been pointing to! If you're constantly talking about the boom, players will pick it up and become good rebels.
4. Recommends verbal rewards. Rewards capture the attention – players and people love the compliment. Regardless of whether you are running a beginner basketball drill or drill that requires more, give a praise to development and hard work
Sometimes a great effort is made to praise the players in front of the team. State praise has often been well received and players will work hard to get such a praise. Keep in mind that negative feedback is needed to add sandwiches between the positive feedback. For example, "You did a great job in court, next time wait for a better shot, continue the big bustle and good shots will be there for you."
Recommended for casual, non-verbal rewards. Players can be motivated to achieve goals, sometimes offering tangible bonuses such as a Gatorade or a great Morgan Wooten tactic. Wooten has offered the "Privileges" to its players.
Privileges for players have come from outstanding efforts or achievement of the goals set. The privileges are gained in practice and finally come to an end. All licenses resulted in a less dressed, suicidal or other conditioning drill.
Players can also take the lap because they do not meet expectations. For example, you can set up a basketball-rebounding drill and players get 5 or more rebounds and those who get less than 4 in one round. Maintain the success of the team. When it comes down, it's much more enjoyable than winning as well as basketball team sports. Players are more likely to make greater effort if they know the team counts on them. Recalling players, actions and words that they will have a team, they will encourage joint work to be successful.
Often, we may literally praise players who work well together or offer non-verbal rewards for exercises that work particularly well together. In addition, knowing the players' strengths and weaknesses will be able to focus on potential conflicts and enforce the team's attitudes. Add Race to Drills It's a great way to spice things up and keep players strong enough to be competitive on drills.
For example, teams can be created to drill a rotation and reward a team or individual player that will result in most shoots. With some imagination you can find ways to make almost every competitor competitive.
Do not forget that because of the comparison between your teammates, some players may feel bad and rival the teammates. Briefly summarizes the player's motivation. If you have to compare your teammates, just model your desired behavior or skill. For example: "Look at how Joe moves through the free throws, try the next time you're in the queue and see what it feels like."
8. Visualization Teaching Visualization is a valuable exercise tool, and this is the only ability athletes can remove from sports regardless of what level they are doing and using their skills to to achieve their success for the rest of their lives.
Imagine achieving their goals. Visualization teaches the emphasis, teaches design, implementation and success. It takes up to a few minutes of visualization in every practice, asking the team to display a game that has difficulties, a shot that they need to work or the execution of the drill chosen.
their sensations in visualization so that they hear the ball bouncing, see the ball bouncing, and feel that the gym's shoes slip to the ground. Do not punish, discipline the intention of teaching Penalty for bad or improper behavior only serves to focus the team and prevent motivation. Instead, discipline with the intention to teach players how to behave properly
Instead of shouting or punishing players who do not live up to their potential, ask them: "This is the best you can do is the hardest thing. simply by recognizing you or not to try the hardest, the players try harder, especially if they know that you notice it.
In addition, it involves the consistency of discipline. For example, if the practice is unacceptable, all those who set up the appropriate type for your team and players Players and teams need goals that they know what to focus on , and they know what to look for. But the most important thing is yours "
I'm convinced NOT to set goals for prestigious statistics like most points and even winning games. Players want these things without goals. Not to mention, it gives them a bad idea.
However, if you find goals set for other critical aspects of the game, you will find great success.
You can set goals with low traffic, team snippet percentage, opponent's shot percentage, team jumping (non-individual), defensive stats, and game titles. You always want a bigger estate than the other team, and this comes from basketball and care.
You can even reach conditioning goals such as 100 push-ups or less than 5 minutes a mile. Just take care of the message that players send when they set goals. If You Use It Well, Your Goals Are Vigorously Motivating
Do not forget to reward players for achieving goals.
You know what motivates some players, does not motivate others. It is important to get acquainted with our players as individuals and to know how they react individually and as a team to motivational tactics. If you are finally involved, excited and willing to take the time to consider the exercises interesting, your team will respond.
