What is Double Goal Coaching?

Teaching “Life Lessons”

Using Effort goals. (Effort vs. Outcome)

Outcome Goals are highly dependent on the quality of one’s opponent, Effort Goals are largely under one’s control regardless of the competition

Effort goals are motivating to all players because they can control them and they can see their progress

Setting effort goals: Game and Season-Long with rookies and talented players

What is a Second Goal Parent?

Definition…………………

“A second goal parent will let players and coaches take responsibility for the first goal of winning. They will relentlessly focus on the second, more important goal of using sports to teach life lessons to their children and other youths.”

Coaching your Son

Tips and Thoughts:

As a coach, you need to wear two hats, parent and coach. When on the field, you are not a parent.

Be sensitive to favoring or penalizing your son.

Don’t bring conversations you had as a parent up as a coach. Utilize other coaches to work with your son.

If you work with your son at home, make it fun rather than drills designed to make him better.

Dealing with Bad Behavior

Ignore Behavior you Don’t Want:

When a player is not doing what you want them to do, they cease to exist and should stay that way until they follow instruction

The player may now realize they are being ignored and ask why. Respond in a matter-of-fact way what they need to do not to be ignored.

Spring-Ford Youth Lacrosse


Positive coaching alliance11

Positive Coaching Alliance

Dealing with Bad Behavior

When You Can’t Ignore:

You cannot ignore behavior that is dangerous or disruptive.

In the “Least-Attention Manner” remove the player from the situation. They can return on their own when they feel they can follow the rules.

If it happens again the same applies, but they cannot come back until you have a chance to talk to them. This is a time to do a fun activity with the rest of the team

The player must understand and articulate the bad behavior before they can return to the team.

Dealing with Bad Behavior

The Discipline of the Three “C’s”:

Calmness

Deal with bad behavior in a controlled manor. Defer to assistant coaches if needed. This shows strength

Consequences

Have a clear understanding of how you expect your player to behave, and what happens if they don’t. If you start the season this way, there will be no confusion

Consistency

Keep this message clear through out the season and with every player.
