The Game-film tells no Lies!

Have you ever had the problem with players that no matter what you say to them they will argue to the end the fact that they are playing well and playing within the system?

Have you ever exhausted all methods in order to try and get them to play well, and they still just don't get it and they look at you like you have two heads for saying so? Really, they are confused!

Bring in the film!

A lot of programs will get parents to tape their games and use it as a coaching tool in order to improve team play. Coaches then view the tape, make notes, and then bring in the team or individual to view the game-tape pointing out the good, the bad, and the ugly.

A lot of players are surprised when they watch themselves play on video. Some of them can't believe it! They are shocked to see themselves look slow or lacklustre, and making mistakes all the while thinking that they are doing fine and having a good game. It can be a tremendous coaching tool but it's not for everybody as it takes some resources to implement and let's face it, its one less thing to worry about on game day. But if you can swing it, go for it, you won't regret it!
