3 Point Guard Coaching Tips: Who Is On Your Team?

Look at this cute little pack of lion cubs!

Oh snap, they are cute.

But just for a moment think about who has helped you become who you are. What people have stopped you from doing something stupid? What friends have challenged you to grow? What family has pushed you to be better at something that you may have quit otherwise? What athletes and coaches have made you better at your craft?

These people are your pack and your pack is powerful.

Thanks, Jim Rohn. Too many kids want to be cool while they play basketball, in practice, and on the court. Too many parents want their kids to succeed at the expense of learning how to deal with failure. Too many coaches don’t demand more out of their youth programs, AAU dads, and players.

Look at who you spend time with and what or how they influence you. Too many kids want to be cool while they play basketball, in practice, and on the court, yet if you have a leader on the team that works hard, typically the “cool” kids fall in line.

I grew up in Petoskey, Michigan and realized rather quickly that Northern Michigan isn’t the mecca of basketball (yes, sorry to break it to you). We are way behind and our athletes are behind. But if we can start to change the culture and who we surround ourselves with, we can make progress.

I like to surround myself with people that work like underdogs and act like champions and embrace a similar pack mentality. I like to surround myself with a team that works together and pushes me to be better. I feel it’s time to start training, practicing, and building your habits so you can succeed out there in the real world.

I value helping others reach their goals so join my mission if you like, just like this pack of cute lion pups.

POINT GUARD COACHING TIP #1: If you can’t name five people that push to grow, it may be time to start meeting new friends.

POINT GUARD COACHING TIP #2: If your teammates don’t like to work out, train, or practice every day, it’s time to find someone that does.

POINT GUARD COACHING TIP #3: If your coach or program doesn’t open the gym, the weight room, and help motivate you to get the best grades possible, it could be time to find a new program.

Why?

First reason, because I DO BELIEVE who you spend most of your time with has a big impact on who you eventually become.

Second reason? Duh, because Mr. Rohn said so.
