Repetitions without being repetitive. We are all guilty of relying on our favorite tried-and-true drills to work on specific skills. A coach should not lose sight of the importance of continuing to promote skill development but mixing in different drills and small area games with new objectives can go a long way to keeping players engaged.
The learning doesn't stop on the ice. Over the course of the year we'll bring in guest speakers such as police or firemen military service members or other professionals to talk to our players about things that are not directly related to the Xs and Os of the game. It's easy to get caught up on the scoreboard and standings especially with the playoffs just around the corner. It's important to remember to enjoy the journey and focus on the friendships that will last long after the final game is played.
Enthusiasm is contagious. If you find it hard to drag yourself into the rink and onto the ice for practice how can you expect your players to be engaged and motivated? We have a few tricks to keep everyone excited about practice. Sometimes we'll pump music over the PA system to get players moving. Or we'll start practice with a small area game to get the competitive juices flowing.
