In my last post I talked about defining your stats, this time I’m talking briefly about setting that process out. Agreeing the stats should be discussed amongst the coaches working with the team, and even you are the only coach – take some advice, talk to the players or another coach. It’s really important that the set of stats are talked about and agreed upon within the team. You really want to avoid having a discussion about them each week.
And.. PRACTICE. Don’t forget to try out ‘your set’ in a practice or friendly game. Review them. DISCUSS. Are they useful? Can we do this each game? Will they be useful if we use the same set each game, or shall we use a different set for each game? The one thing that is for sure, for most grades you will likely be better to trial, revise, discuss and set out a plan. Unless I’m wrong? What are your experiences?
