Key Principles

Describe Their Own Learning

Each player has the responsibility to describe what they want to learn. The coach’s task is to get to know the person and learn what motivates them.

Learn How To Be An Elite Athlete

Players will develop an understanding of how to focus on proper training, nutrition and rest.

A Growth Mindset

Create an environment where players and staff believe that, with the right effort, everything can be developed

Raise The Bar

Begin with the end in mind, have high expectations of everyone in the club and keep your eye on the prize.

Create An Environment of Discomfort

Push players out of their comfort zone to learn how to adapt i.e. train on a bumpy field, field with long grass, sand field etc. Players must learn to deal with failure, to stetch their field of tolerance.

Solution Focused Thinkers

Players must make mistakes and learn by exploring what works and what doesn’t. Coaches ask questions for players to think about and answer. Coaches refrain from giving answers.
