Getting our Program into SCHAPE!

S-Spirit

  • Championship level play requires large amounts of energy
  • Great teams are spirited and enthusiastic​
    • Poor teams are mundane and monotonous
  • Spirit is needed the most when you feel like giving it the least.  "Act as If"

 

"We can have talking, clapping, or running"  Billy Gillespie

  • High level practice is noisy
    • Hear-Noise
    • See-Intensity
  • Need even more spirit from players on the sideline (either not in the drill or injured)
  • Why no Spirit?
    • Coaches don't bring it. 
      • It's the players job to be positive and bring spirit
    • You don't feel like it.
      • See third bullet point
    • Three ways to increase spirit
      • High Five's
      • Chest Bumps
      • Butt Slaps

 

C-Communicate

  • Why don't teams talk?
    • Lack of Confidence
    • Afraid to put it out there
    • Don't understand the importance of their voice
    • Shy-introverted

 

"Not talking on a basketball court is like missing a lay up."  Jeff Capel

"We have a special place for strong silent types--THE BENCH!"  Mike Krzyewski

  • NITE Communication
    • N-Name
      • People love to hear their names, draw attention to them
      • Say names first before giving any information or feedback
    • I-Intellegent
      • Basketball information relative to what is happening on the floor
    • T-Tone of Voice
      • Its not what you say, it's how you say it
    • E-Eye Contact
      • #1 way to dictate communication
  • How to Communicate
    • Say what you are doing
    • Tell teammate what they are doing
  • Reminders

 

90% of all communication is Non-Verbal

 

H-Hustle

  • Leading by example is not enough; but it is necessary
    • Don't be a 50/50 player where you work hard 50% of the time and find 50% of the time to take it easy
  • Be a sheep dog
    • Heard sheep to do the necessary things together
    • Be persistent and hard working until the task is completed
  • Be the first one to every drill/station
  • Hustle is contagious.  So is lack of hustle.  Want do you want our program to be known for? 

 

A-Attitude

  • Control what you can control; don’[t worry about what you can’t control
  • Consistency of disposition
    • Mental Toughness
      • Don’t be a victim of the environment
      • Own you emotions; don’t let emotions own you
    • Focus on bigger things.  Maximize time.
      • Noble-minded
      • Un-ruffle-ability

 

P-Precision

  • Having the discipline to do something as well as it can be done every single time even if it is uncomfortable or inconvenient.
  • Most people are happy to do stuff pretty well.  They will cut corners and be happy to just “get by.”
  • Precision is doing all of the things that say “I care enough to be above average.”
  • Develop a ridiculous attention to detail.
    • Would you want a sloppy or undisiciplined doctor, attorney, or pilot?  Or would you want a doctor, attorney, or pilot that pays attention to detail?
    • Coaches want players that pay attention to detail.
  • Greatness is being able to do over and over again things others do every once in awhile.

 

E-Enhance

  • Enhance:  to positively contribute to an environment or unselfishly offer a service
  • Contribute, don’t contaminate
  • Leave environments better than you found it
  • ETDMTYS (expect to do more than your share)
