Training Essentials – The E’s


Energy – Coach and expect high energy from your athletes. Expect high energy do not be willing to settle for less.

Enthusiasm – Genuine enthusiasm for what you do is contagious. Show your enthusiasm in tone of voice and body language.

Excitement – Look for what is exciting, recognize it and build upon it. In coaching exciting things happen every day.

Excellence – The standard we must go by, accept nothing less. Excellence must be woven into the fiber of the whole program.

Effort – It takes no talent to give effort. A high level of effort is expected, nothing less.
