PLAYER EXPECTATIONS

  • BE POSITIVE

What happens to you is not as important as how you react to what happens to you.

  • WORK HARD

Everyone wants success but few are willing to pay the price for success.

  • NO EXCUSES

Don’t waste your time, your coach’s time, or your teammate’s time by making excuses for your shortcomings or failures.  Get the job done with great pride and effort, or fail and accept the consequences.  Productivity is what we are looking for.

  • SENSE OF URGENCY

Things need to be done right now, the right way.  Make everything a coach says important to you.  Move from drill to drill quickly.  Don’t walk, run.  Get quiet immediately when a coach speaks.

  • ATTENTION TO DETAIL

The little things win championships.  Fundamentals will make an average player a good player, a good player great!  Absorb every word your coaches say and watch your position when you are not in.  Mental reps!

  • EXPECT VICTORY

You get what you expect.  Great upsets occur because athletes don’t listen to critics, they listen to their hearts.  You have to believe.  90% of the battle is fought before it even takes place with your mental preparation and your physical preparation (4:1).

  • FINISH

Finish the workout, drill, practice, game, homework, etc., no matter what the circumstances.  Never quit!  Believe in yourself.  Make it happen
