We as a coaching staff strive to build a positive team culture through a process called S.M.A.R.T: steady, model, all-inclusive, respect and tradition. Creating a positive team culture requires a steady diet of actions/activities that strengthen relationships and build player confidence. Reward and praise your players for acts of stellar leadership, teamwork, and unselfish play. Moreover, integrate fun activities such as community service, team dinners, or bowling night for the players to further bond off the court. It is equally important to model a positive culture amongst your coaching staff. Always present a united front with shared responsibilities and mutual ownership of the program. Being all-inclusive highlights the idea of taking the necessary steps to ensure that every team member feels equally valued. Player roles must be clearly defined, explicitly communicated, and equally applauded. Respect yourself, each other, and your opponents. We as a staff can make our point without making an enemy. We believe in teaching life lessons such as discipline within our team dynamic. In our program, character always comes first. Tradition can be built or built upon. The prevailing vibe of your team should scream pride. Players must play for each other and for the name that is across their jersey. Positive team culture precedes a championships.
