Discipline and accountability go hand in hand. We must hold our athletes accountable for their actions both when they are with us and when they are away. Our athletes represent our athletic program, which is essentially our brand. They are representing us when they are in other teachers' classes and when they are out with their friends. We hold the…
 
One of the greatest gifts we can give our athletes is helping them understand that they are playing for family. When they see their teammates as brothers and sisters, there is no limit to what they will do for each other. The greatest edge you can give your athletic program is a culture founded on family. In this episode, Coach Jeremy Reed discusse…
 
We spend a lot of time thinking about being champions on the field, but what about being champions in the home? How do we become championship fathers? How do we teach the boys in our athletic programs and under our roofs to be championship fathers when they grow up? In this episode, author, mentor, and friend, Carey Casey tells us that being a cham…
 
Every person you meet is in one of three places: -Having a bad time -About to have a bad time -Recovering from a bad time It is guaranteed that you will have bad days and rough times. There may even be days when you struggle to get out of bed. Those rough times and the struggles you face can either anchor you down or be the catalyst that propels yo…
 
Love is not weakness. Love is strength. Love makes you willing to die to self for your teammates. It makes you willing to serve them. Without love, there's no service, no selflessness, and no sacrifice As we've said many times before, sacrifice is required to find success. When you love your team and your teammates, you will sacrifice for them, and…
 
“Because I said so” isn’t just a statement of authority. It’s also a statement of dependability: Because I said so, it will be done. Dependability is all about doing what you say you are going to do. Dependability will always beat ability because no matter how much talent you have, it’s worthless if you can’t be depended upon to do what you said yo…
 
Celebration is contagious. When we see someone smile or laugh, we want to smile and laugh with them. Complaining is also contagious, though. When we hear someone complain about the weather, it makes us realize it's too hot, too muggy, or too something when moments before we were enjoying a beautiful day. When we hear someone complain about a situat…
 
Team values that aren't put into practice are just words. That said, having an easy-to-remember acronym to consistently remind athletes of our team values can help athletes to turn those words into action. In this episode, Coach Sam Harrell breaks down the acronym FAST, which they use at Ennis High School to talk about their team values. FAST stand…
 
Our work adds up a little at a time until we reap big results. But if we don't put in our little bit of work today, that little bit rolls to tomorrow, which pushes tomorrow's work to the next day, just like a snowball begins to gather mass as it rolls down the hill, until the work has piled up into an overwhelming heap. It's easy to put things off …
 
In this episode with Coach Mike Fecci of Mckinney North High School, Coach Fecci stresses that winning games is a byproduct of a great team culture. The young man or woman must be built first; then the winning part will take care of itself. It all starts with our athletes' character. The more opportunities we give them to get character reps, the be…
 
Our athletes have the capacity to become tough, gritty individuals. As coaches, we have the capacity to help them get there. We want to teach our athletes to be mentally tough, to do the right thing in everything that they do, and to succeed at challenges they think are beyond them. During this interview, Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Z…
 
Inside every struggle there is tremendous opportunity. We live in interesting times, and interesting is often a euphemism for difficult. But even in these interesting, difficult times, there are opportunities everywhere. Opportunities to affect others. Opportunities to get up and do something. Opportunities to step beyond our comfort zone so that w…
 
Description: Second-in-command, second chair, assistant coach. These are all ways of describing the same thing: a leader. An assistant coach is just as valuable to the team as the head coach. A second chair has a responsibility to help the first chair become his best, just as the first helps the second to be the best they can be. Just because a lea…
 
Description: Coaches are under a lot of pressure to get wins and have model athletes, but there isn't necessarily a lot of praise or thanks for all the hard work that goes into meeting those demands. But coaches are helping to develop the adults of tomorrow. Many of us had an influential coach in our middle or high school years who left a lasting i…
 
In the midst of uncertainty with school and business closures, Mackey and Colton bring us this episode, where they discuss accepting reality, taking action, and being there for our athletes and our F.A.M.I.L.Y. Mackey and Colton want to remind us that it's okay to be blindsided by the current situation because no one could have seen this coming. Bu…
 
The people that we surround ourselves with at work and in our personal lives have a huge influence on us. That's why it's so important to surround ourselves with people who do things the right way and who help us grow personally and professionally This is one of many insights provided by Coach John Walsh of Denton ISD in this interview. Coach Walsh…
 
Our team and school standards are what make us who we are. Everything runs more smoothly when coaches and athletes are doing the right things based on those standards. Our high standards give our athletes something to grab and hold onto when something goes wrong in their lives. It's an anchor for our student-athletes' lives where they can learn how…
 
As coaches, we have to hold our athletes accountable for their actions. When they mess up a play in the middle of a big game, that's on them. After all, we're not the ones playing; they are. But, we have to remember that every kid responds to constructive criticism differently, so the way that we address accountability and hold each athlete account…
 
Coaches and athletes are motivated by a scoreboard. Sometimes that scoreboard reflects the game results, but sometimes it reflects an A/B honor roll percentage. The difference is in the focus of the athletic program. Are we in it just for the on-field wins and trophies? Or, do we understand that there is something more important than sports going o…
 
Coaches aren't successful unless their athletes are successful. That's why we push our athletes so hard in practice and off-season. That's why we yell and assign burpies. We want to see them grow and succeed. But, as Coach Rod Blount of Navarro ISD reminds us during this interview, there's more to helping our athletes become their best selves than …
 
If we expect our athletes to keep returning day after day, game after game, and year after year, they need to want to be here. Coach Gerald Brence of Plano ISD asks coaches to remember that our athletes want encouragement, fairness, and organization. If we can give them that, we can make athletics the highlight of their day. During this interview, …
 
Trust has to be built before you can make any major changes after you transition to a new-to-you athletics program. See, the program is new to you, but it’s already been established by others. If you try to bring in a wrecking ball on day one, it’s going to ruffle feathers. Sometimes feather-ruffling is necessary, but you won’t know until you obser…
 
How you weekend has a direct impact on how you perform during the week. It’s not separate from the rest of the week or from your personal identity. When you weekend poorly (i.e. wasting time, doing things you shouldn’t), it’s a symptom of a deeper issue with the balance in your life. Leaders rise above the TGIF mentality. They recognize that althou…
 
According to Coach Eric de los Santos of Irving High, athletes want discipline because it equals freedom. The team at 2 Words definitely agrees. Coaches expect things from their athletes that the kids might not expect of themselves, and discipline is the only way to make it a reality. Discipline gives us the space to learn and grow within boundarie…
 
If you want your athletes to invest their time, energy, and effort in your program, you have to invest in your athletes. Continuously building relationships with your student-athletes allows you to speak to them on a deeper level than pep talks and plays. In this episode, Coach Chance Westmoreland of Argyle High School shares why building relations…
 
When you start something new, the very novelty of it makes everything exciting. You’re curious and ready to see where this new activity can take you. But there will come a point when that stops. This is the point when motivation fades, and there’s a long slog to get through before habit makes this hard thing easy. To honor your integrity, you have …
 
Investing in your athletes is sort of like investing in a 401k for retirement. The more you put in, the more you will get out later. That investment is particularly important when you join a new program. The athletes don’t know you yet, and they probably won’t be ready for you to drop a 50 lb. hammer on them in practice. In this episode, Colton and…
 
No matter what season you’re in, it will come to a finish. High school ends, college ends, eventually even the pros retire. Every season will finish, but you choose how you will finish it. Will you finish strong—blowing past the finish line? Or will you have a meh finish where you reach the line, but not at full steam? How you finish is how you set…
 
Things won’t always go our way. During tough times, our primary job as coaches is to be there to support our athletes. We can help them grow through the struggle as long as we stand firm and support each other. This inspiring message and more comes from Coach Travis Reeve, Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at Cuero High School. In this epis…
 
“Because I said so” isn’t just a statement of authority. It’s also a statement of dependability: Because I said so, it will be done. Dependability is all about doing what you say you are going to do. Dependability will always beat ability because no matter how much talent you have, it’s worthless if you can’t be depended upon to do what you said yo…
 
We love talking to coaches like Head Football Coach John Fish of Bonham high school about the values of their program, their ideas about the most important skills for coaches and athletes, and good, sound advice. In this episode, Coach Fish shares his program values, including discipline, relating to peers, and responding to our emotions. He tells …
 
Coach Andy Sexton, Director of Athletics for Bastrop ISD, took some time to talk with Coach 360 about the issues facing coaches today, and how the Bastrop ISD program is finding solutions. The issues and solutions discussed include: holding athletes accountable for mistakes, fighting to keep players engaged in the program, and hiring the right peop…
 
How much negative self-talk do our student-athletes experience everyday? Probably more than we suspect, since most of that negative self-talk is happening in their heads where we can’t hear it or correct it. We may never know how much negative self-talk our athletes are dealing with, but we can help them overcome it. This episode of Coach 360 provi…
