What Happens When...
The plan was set. The wheels put in motion. We were primed for a fantastic performance. Warm up went well. We were loose. We were ready. We stepped in the circle. Unlike past performances, it just wasn’t there.
When performances do not go as planned, how do we as coaches handle that situation with our athletes? Do you give your athletes time to think about it? Do you engage your athlete(s) immediately after the poor performance?
What are your thoughts?

I guess, coaches have trained themselves for unusual situations that can happen anytime. They have experienced it in the past that is why they are aware that everything might happen no matter how much you guys have prepared for it. By the way, I am looking forward to hear more words of wisdom from the coaches! I can feel that there are so many things that I can learn from them. Athletes should read more blogs from you!
