Sometimes I call myself a “Reminder” not a Coach. I feel as if I am continually reminding players of things they need to be working on to improve. It takes a lot of patience to repeat myself, repeat myself, repeat myself and I often wonder if players even hear me? If they are hearing me? Are they comprehending what they are hearing? Do I need to clarify it…again…say it differently…spell it out for them?
The following spelling bee “fail” (which actually is not a fail at all) is a good reminder to me, on why I need to continue to be a reminder to players that need to be reminded…oh yeah, and be patient too.
