✪✪✪ I've just spent my Sunday morning checking everything is ready for the new season with my #Tringrugby U14s. I absolutely love coaching this team and can't wait for the new season to start.
🛠🛠🛠 Part of the process with any sport is "𝑷𝒓𝒆𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒈" for the next season ahead. Here's just a few things going through my head at the moment:
🎯💡🎯 Are all the players both rested and ready?
🎯💡🎯 What is the squad looking like?
🎯💡🎯 Is the coaching team ready?
🎯💡🎯 What does success look like for our team and players?
🎯💡🎯 What kit do we need to train at our best?
🎯💡🎯 What is our schedule of matches and training?
🎯💡🎯 What 'off-field' activity do we do?
🎯💡🎯 How do we communicate and manage expectations?
🎯💡🎯 How do we keep learning and growing as a team?
