Host: Tyler Vaughan
In the opening episode of Between The Post your host Tyler Vaughan tackles one of the most impactful areas of coaching that often takes a backseat to other strategies. While it appears lower on the list of many coaches and organizations it is by far one of the most influential strategies we as coaches can leverage to impact the next generation of soccer players, especially goalkeepers!
After today's episode, we hope you gain further insight into player motivation, and more importantly, strengthen strategies that most coaches likely already do. As all coaches, parents, be it of goalkeepers or not know, a player's attitude likely dictates their performance and at times success. As Tyler walks you through his 5 tips he will provide both background and examples of how you can immediately take this information back to your teams, and immediately implement the changes you feel are needed to encourage player success.
Tyler offers a unique perspective fit for coaches of any level or player type to reflect on areas that we can all focus, grow, and improve. One of the first tips that you have already checked off your list by listening to this episode is acknowledging how critical player motivation really is to the success of individuals and teams in not only soccer but also sports of all types. Tyler encourages listeners to adopt his tips to fit the strengths you already have and consider a consistent, yet incremental approach to motivating players.
In anything, we introduce over this season of Between The Post we encourage you to set personal goals that are attainable and realistic. All coaches, parents, and players have different backgrounds and familiarities with the game of soccer and what motivation can look like. Tyler makes a point to emphasize that for volunteers and parents specifically, he encourages you to reach out to any leading coach even if outside of the soccer pitch to gain relevant knowledge that you can relate to. Coaching strategies around player motivation prove that we can all learn from each other, even if across multiple sports if we maintain a common focus, player success.
