Why Is Building Self-Confidence In Your Players Important?
As a youth coach, working with players with high self-confidence is ideal. Most coaches understand that players with high self-confidence can push through adversity and tackle obstacles playing volleyball along with life challenges.
An important question every coach can ask themselves at every practice is, “Am I crafting an environment where I can recognize excellence in my “Players Self-Ideal”, “Winning Team Culture”, and “Playing Standard” which will result in helping build confidence in my players in the areas where I would like them to thrive?” By recognizing excellence as a youth coach, players will begin and eventually evolve into possessing the characteristics that your program strives to create both on and off the court.
Do You Know The Driving Forces Each Youth Player Has?
Peer pressure and approval from teammates are two driving forces players are managing and seeking beyond approval from their parents and coaches. We help youth coaches leverage players driving need for approval into a powerfully positive tool from our Volleyball1on1 Superior Coaching Systems ® – Bump Up ®. At the final wrap-up of each practice before final announcements and full practice review the coach holds the Volleyball1on1 Bump Up ® Ball. The Bump Up ® exercise starts with the coach “Bumping Up” or recognizing excellence in the behaviors of one of the players during practice. The behaviors most often relate to the Volleyball1on1 – “What Great Looks Like!” ® Winning Team Culture, “What Great Looks Like!” ® Playing Standard or Do Your Share. ™
The Bump Up ® player then takes the ball from the coach and in turn Bump’s Up ® another player who they can recognize excellence in for the way they conducted themselves in practice, again as it relates to our program ideals. This continues for a few minutes with players finding the best in other as it relates to the positive traits we expect from the participants in our program. This is a powerful tool to reverse engineer positive peer pressure towards your Volleyball1on1 programs “Winning Team Culture” and “Playing Standard”.
Can We Help You Peak Your Players For Playoffs?
Volleyball1on1’s Bump Up ® and Whole Person Growth ® systems can also help you successfully peak your players for play offs. Over the course of a season, our job as coaches is to steer the team towards our “Winning Team Culture”, while establishing “What Great Looks Like!” ®. At the same time, we craft an environment where we can recognize excellence in the self-ideal. The result is that players will develop confidence individually, which will then permeate onto the team as their behaviors and performances begin to match their self-ideal which we as coaches establish. The correct timing of the self-concept theory can result in players peaking at just the right time of season, all within the full control and direction of the coaching staff.
At Volleyball1on1 we help youth coaches implement our Superior Coaching Systems ® to help them become great coaches who can craft an environment where they apply our systems and tools to take their players along a journey each season to recognize excellence in the players self-ideal, thus building the players self-esteem so that their self-concept matches their self-ideal. These great youth coaches understand these action steps powerfully permeates into the rest of their players lives into powerfully positive ways ongoing.
