Welcome to week 2 of our newsletter! Another week of growth and development in the books. This past week we recently announced the official date for the Mastery Hoops Player Program. (June 5th)
This will be based around the same concept of training effectively and utilizing the science and research on what actually works, not just what players see on Instagram. We will have 3 different pillars, like we do on the coaches side, basketball training, performance training, and mental training. We will be talking about this more as we get closer and even how you coaches can potentially benefit from this as well..
Enough about the players, lets get into some practical stuff that might be of value for you guys this coming week.
5 Lessons You Can Apply From The Language of Coaching
The Language of Coaching has been one the most impactful and useful books we have read over the last year. Every word we use has an impact on the players we coach, for better or for worse. This book will give you a full breakdown on how the words we use, and the way we use them, effect our players ability to learn and improve. You can also buy the book right here
Featured Blog Post: What do players REALLY want from coaches.
This is my currently my favorite blog post we have up and was written by Coach KJ Conklin. As coaches, we think our players mainly want a coach who KNOWS the game, but is that really the case? This article dives into all the things players actually want. To check it our for free click here
What we learned this week:
The main thing I have been thinking about this week and continuing to learn as I progress in my training business is this; if you do everything in your business, you don't have a business, you have a job. It is extremely hard to detach from the business especially because it was just you at the start and you did everything. You want to keep that quality and feel if anyone does any aspect of it, it wont be as good, so you refrain from trying. If you want any FREEDOM, you need to find the right people. This applies for business owners and coaches, if you success and freedom you need the right people and culture to thrive. What in your life that you do subpar could you give to someone else who can do it better than you?
This week I have been reminded of something that we all experience, but quite often take for granted. Basketball is a great game and better. But no aspects of the game compare to how basketball can be used as a platform to connect with others, experience new things, and take you to places you could only dream of. Use the game to your advantage, what you give the game, it'll give you back.
