So, I opened the door to listening to them and their suggestions by using the cooperative-style. This style involved sharing decisions with the team (page 31). I gave them direction, provided instruction and only used discipline when only necessary plus I allowed the athletes to make decisions and assume responsibility (page 31). I accepted guidance from my staff and parents, too. The team’s culture changed for the better and became our social architecture that fueled the team psyche.
Throughout the season, it shows the struggles of the athletes in class and on the field, but also shows the struggles and obstacles Coach Courtney goes through. The team has several players that are very
Max is a player; then, we joined three other athletes. During our brainstorm meeting, we realized that four out of six of us are too similar in terms of age, experience with OLS classes, and background. We faced challenges in generating various ideas from everyone, having a shared understanding of the project, and finding time for team meetings, since it was busy season for sport. Additionally, we had inadequate participations. I think that many of us had introverted personalities, which turned our team to some do the leadership functions and some just followed them.
At our organization we know that guidance is determined by substance and the style of the coach’s delivery and whether good or bad everything a coach says or does becomes a message that the athletes receive, interpret and respond to mentally (quote book). One of the effective interventions we seek to apply to our coaches is team building. Team building research analysis point out that a sport psychologist professional would be great to help apply these procedures analytically in our program. We want our coaches to be able to inspect the efficacy of their coaching styles and improve the processes that lessen or encumbers our current solidarity among our athletes. How can the team building approach be enhanced by employing a sport psychologist consultant services at Clear Choice Coaching and what can it do for
Every member of a sports team must cooperate. A team always works together. Because I will likely be responsible for a particular task that is unique to me, such as recruiting, scouting, or skill development, there will be times when I will require individual work settings. I will be at the bottom of the hierarchy as a Graduate Assistant and then as an assistant coach. I will be expected to make decisions in group situations and will primarily be given roles and directions.
The concept of team in an individual sport may seem insignificant, but in cross country it’s essential to building and sustaining an excellent program. Its importance is key in recruiting, especially at the high school level where it may be the only thing that can get certain kids to run. Its importance can also be seen in a race, and may allow an athlete to go above his normal level of performance if he believes he is running for the team and not just himself. It is because of these reasons that a strong team dynamic is essential to success in the sport of cross
If I was the coach, I could have several ways to try to win and change it up a little bit. Even though everyone normally knows where they are playing because they always play there, I would ask were they want to play and put them there for practice and see how they do and if they do good then maybe they will get to play there in a game it won 't hurt anything. Right now the varsity and Junior variety split up for practice but I think we should stay together, if we stay together the coaches have a better opportunity to see who has the ability to play varsity or who can play where, to see who is good and bad. The coaches should push us harder at practice and maybe we can win more.
They show there teamwork when one of the boys comes up with the idea of the club and when they built the pitch, and support each other when they lose the semifinal game. The Panyee boys show teamwork, an example of this is when they came up with the idea to make the team. They first started working on what they would do, and how would they be able to play, because they had no clue how to! They said “In our town it had no room.” so they planned and asked where would be the best place to work and play?
Teams are groups of people who come together to reach a desired goal. In my life, I am part of many teams like in soccer, school, and my family. From these teams I have formed my belief about the importance of working with others. I have recognized that a team player is a person who can form good chemistry, can contribute to a team, and can help their fellow teammates. I believe that from my experience in soccer, school, and with my family, that being a team player is essential for success in life.
Moreover, the performing phase taken at face value goes much further than to imply that a team is simply just playing the game. Any individual on a team can perform, but the success of a team is determined by its ability to perform efficiently as a group. This idea seemed to form the basic message that the “Building a Cohesive Team” video was attempted to construe. Further, the author of that video also stressed the importance of competent leadership and the role it serves in forming an effective and cohesive team. With respect to a sports team, leadership roles are quite diverse, albeit the head coach remains at the top of the chain.
It was a seemingly impossible task for Coach Carter to motivate the team and help them achieve excellence but for coach Carter is was almost perfect because he was motivated to help the team become more disciplined, more respectable, and cooperative and an overall better team. Coach Carter endeavoured to motivate his team by using multiple techniques. According to (Anon., n.d.) He used methods such as: 1.Encouragement, 2. Discouragement, 3.Second chances, 4.Teamwork, 5.Punishment, 6.
In essence, teamwork can be defined as a group of people working in the same direction and for a common purpose. Teamwork requires individuals be a team player and to be able to work well with others; after all, there is no “I” in “Team”! As with any endeavour, we faced some initial setbacks. With this being our first college team assignment, we were all treading on unfamiliar territory.
Patrick Lencioni in his book ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a team’, through a fable talks about typically 5 dysfunctions that any team faces: Dysfunction #1: Absence of Trust The fear of being vulnerable with team members prevents the building of trust within the team. Dysfunction #2: Fear of Conflict The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles the occurrence of productive ideological conflict.
