The On-Court Coach Communication Style Critical to Player Mental Toughness Development…

When we get this one on court coaching communication style consistently right, it’s about as powerful a mental toughness promoter as there is…

That’s the reason that we all should focus on it until it’s fundamental to our coaching (especially when players get frustrated after missing a shot/losing a point during practice).

But because of our competitive brain it’s hard not to fall for the trap of doing a poor job of this when working on improving an area of a player’s game….I know I catch myself not doing it very well regularly.

And I’m guessing if I watched you coach I’d see you regularly trip up on this one as well…This video is about how to gradually boost your players mental toughness by using this simple communication style.

Do you agree or do you think there’s something more important than this?

  1. Great advice! Our first reaction is usually based upon whether we made or missed a shot. It takes a great coach to get beyond that and get players to focus on one piece at a time no matter whether they make the shot or not. Once players understand this process it becomes easier to teach them new pieces of the puzzle. Thanks for the great video!
