We’re Getting Closer

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Today, most our team will be heading out of town to enjoy their upcoming week of spring break.  A week of rest and relaxation, as most mid-terms are done.  A week to recharge physically and mentally.  And a week for me to get busy planning practices again.

Because the week after, starting March 27, we begin our 16 days of non-traditional season.  Or what I also refer to as our 2012 pre- preseason.  In this 16 day period, we will put a focus on improving individual skills, vision, and strategy.  We will run activities where our players, thru immediate feedback, will be aware of how well their doing.  And we will also focus on the “new us”.

We will  become a stronger, more connected unit.  We will challenge each other, thereby challenging ourselves.  And we will raise our standards of excellence.  We will do this by answering the following questions:

How do we perceive ourselves?

How do we want others to perceive us?

And, what do we need to do about it?

March 27… cannot wait!
