24 Feb 229. How Coaches Fill the Gap | John Contrucci | Junction ISD
The role of a coach is intricate, even complex. It seems like it should be very simple: Set drills, work out plays, review tape, play the game, rinse and repeat. But if all we focus on is the X’s and O’s, or the nitty-gritty details of the sport, we are missing the mark. As Coach John Contrucci, Athletic Director of Junction ISD reminds us in this episode, coaching goes beyond running plays and scoring points. As coaches, we fill a void in the lives or our athletes by modeling appropriate behavior for them and helping them to rise to a higher standard.
Key Takeaways: -Coaches must model a good work ethic and lead by example. -Coaches fill in the gap in their athletes’ lives. -Love for athletes and passion for encouraging others are the keys to good coaching.
