Lagfilosofi - EFFORT


U15 lagfilosofi sammanfattas i förkortningen E.F.F.O.R.T. Filosofin introducerades av lagets tidigare huvudcoach Mike Briski och är nu en integrerad del av lagets arbetssätt. Tanken med EFFORT är att det ska beskriva vad teammedlemmar och coacher förutsätter av sig själva och varandra. Först en kortare sammanfattning, längre ner på sidan hittar du hela filosofin på engelska.

E.F.F.O.R.T

E=Elevate - Take your game to the next level.
  

F=Focus - Listen and learn.  Perform every drill at practice as if it was game time.  
 
    

F=Fun - Try to remember it's a game, always have fun and help others to have fun
                               

O=Ownership - Be responsible for your actions on & off the field.
                                

R=Respect - Sportsmanship is paramount! Respect your coaches, teammates, referees, spectators and opponent.
                                

T=Teamwork - This is a team sport and you cannot achieve the desired goals and results without working together.

Coaching Philosophy “The WE Attitude”

We believe that players gain confidence and a love for the game through positive feedback from parents, coaches, and other players. Skill level develops at different rates for players of all ages, but effort and having fun can always be achieved. We will try to always provide positive feedback for effort.   

We think it’s important that a coach takes more than a casual interest in the players. We strive to talk with all the players 1 on 1 at some point during the practices and games. We may not be successful getting to every player each day, but want them to know that we’re interested in what they have to say and more importantly, want them to know that their coaches like them as a person and have a vested interest in their progression as a player.

We believe in trying to make practices as fun and entertaining for the players as possible, while at the same time providing them with the necessary instruction to improve. Players expect and respond well to structured, well organized practices. Attention span is often limited with this age group, so we will strive to keep them moving and active.   

We will always try to tell the players how important it is for them to support each other and to always be positive towards their teammates. Teamwork and developing friendships is an important part of any team sport.

We don't talk to the players about "needing to win a game" or "how important it is that we win".  Competition is an important element of any sport and as players grow they naturally become more competitive. It is our role and that of the parents to help develop the ability to deal with competition in a healthy way. Effort and attitude are our primary focus. If we can achieve that, then chances are we'll win a number of games that we are capable of winning.

We will work on teaching the basic fundamentals and skills during practice, but believe that game time is their time. We will give instruction during the game if we feel it will help with their performance during the game, but in general we try to let them enjoy the game. We don't think any of the players want to be told what they did wrong during the game. It is our hope as parents you will do the same. At this age, missed opportunities can ruin the game of football for some. If your child misses a block or tackle, tell them how proud you were of the effort they made to get in front of it. Strive to make them feel good about their contribution. Our goal is to have every child feel that they played to their full potential that day.

Objectives:

With this age group, we have 5 primary coaching objectives which are equally important.

  1. Help players develop skills necessary to be successful and to prepare them for next season and for some U17.

  2. To have fun and have the players develop a love for the game.

  3. Learn about the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.

  4. Give positive reinforcement based on effort rather than results.

  5. Provide a safe and healthy environment for all the players on the team.

 

Player Expectations:

  1. Always convey positive attitude & willingness to learn. Giving your best effort is all that is needed.

  2. Players ALWAYS show respect for the coaches, parents, and other players on the team.

  3. Be on time, if you are going to be late or miss practice have the common courtesy to tell a coachif you know ahead of time. You need to give a timely answer to invites from coaches and team leaders.

  4. Avoid constantly requesting to play a specific position or refusing to play a position the coach(s) request of you. (Not everyone can be the quarterback). Know that each position is equally important to a team’s success.

  5. Spend time outside of practice perfecting what you have learned. Become a student of the game, effort and drive are always appreciated.

  6. Have fun (smile & laugh).

  7. Always give 100%, give your full attention and effort to coaches and your fellow players.

  8. Be ambassadors of the game, actively discuss your experiences with others in your school, community, and social clubs/events. Invite them to attend practices and games.   

Parent Expectations

  1. Please try to get your child to practice and games on time.  Understandably, this can be difficult at times and impossible at other times, but it is very difficult to conduct practice or get ready for a game when players continually show up late or not at all.  It is equally unfair to the rest of the team whom depend on a specific number of teammates needed to compete. If you know your child will be late or won’t be able to make it to a practice or game, please let your coaching staff know in advance. You need to give a timely answer to all invites from the coaches and the team leaders.

  2. Please encourage your child’s effort over specific results. Support and encourage your child to always give 100% effort. When they put in the effort, results will come.

  3. During the year we will need your help in team and club activities. We expect every parent to help at least one activity per year.

  4. Get involved in playing ball with your child. This may be helping out with practice or playing catch in the yard on days we don’t practice. Kids love it when their parents get involved.  Repetition is also crucial for skill improvement. There simply isn’t enough organized practice time for the kids to become completely comfortable with everything that will be taught. Support the coaching effort by continuing to work at home on the skills and drills taught at practice. If you have questions on how to conduct a specific drill, please don’t hesitate to ask your coaching staff.

  5. Please encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game and practice.  

  6. Please contact us directly if you have any issues or questions. Same holds true if your child isn’t happy about something. We want to know if there is a problem right away. With this age group, very small things can cause a child to be upset. These problems can be fixed very easily if we know about them and can address them quickly. If during any practice or game you have a question/concern that does not sit right with you and has caused the slightest bit of agitation, we WANT to hear about it.  
    Please discretely approach us  at any time AWAY from the team, other parents, and general fans. We hope the reasoning behind this is self-explanatory.

  7. Safety is a primary concern for us. Unfortunately, we can’t watch every child every second.  If you see any situation that you believe is a safety concern, please step in and help. Make sure you follow up with the coaching staff.

We are very excited about this upcoming season and hope that we will learn and grow together as a team and as a Stockholm Mean Machine family.
