13 WAYS TO BUILD CULTURE.
Successful programs have created a palpable culture, sound habits and high standards:
1.- Program > Team > Player.
2.- Players and coaches talk to each other, not at each other. Big difference.
3.- No one is perfect. Mistakes will happen on and off the court. Learn from them.
4.- Every player and every coach is important to the team and plays a role. Respect that.
5.- Focus on effort and attitude. Those are the only 2 things we have complete control over.
6.- You either accept it or you correct it. There is nothing in between.
7.- Repetition is not viewed as punishment. Repetition is necessary to development.
8.- Confront issues, not people.
9.- Goals match behaviors and habits.
10.- Be on time. It is a sign of respect.
11.- Discipline = Love.
12.- If you aren’t prepared to put the team first… don’t play.
13.- Believe or leave…
Being a part of program is not a part time endeavor. It’s something you get to pick and choose. You belong to and represent your program 24-7-365. Act accordingly. Coach Sergio said.
12 KEYS TO A WINNING PROGRAM.
Please note, when I say winning program – I not referring to W’s & L’s exclusively.
I am referring to a winning culture, developing winning habits and setting winning standards.
Winning is all about commitment.
Every player and every coach must be committed to…
1.- Academic work. Aim for success in everything you do, not just the stuff you want to do.
2.- Behavior. Carry yourself in a first class manner at all times. Be respectful.
3.- Character. Doing the right thing all of the time (not just when someone is watching you).
4.- The program. No player is bigger than the team and no team is bigger than the program.
5.- Working hard. There is never an excuse to let someone outwork you. Never.
6.- Working smart. Work out with efficiency & purpose. Learn how to play the right way.
7.- Working consistently. Anyone can be good for a day. Work hard/smart every.
8.- Unselfishness. Be a servant leader. Put other’s needs first.
9.- A winning attitude. Earn confidence through effort and demonstrated performance.
10.- The team. Commit to your team’s philosophy and system of play.
11.- Your role. Know it. Embrace it. Take pride it. Fulfill it to the best of your ability.
12.- Your teammates and coaches. They are your brothers. You are a family.
Sencillo. Si no das, no pidas. Si no sumas, no restes. Si no apoyas, no critiques. Si no preguntas, no supongas. No exijas, lo que no das. No hables, lo que no sabes.
