I volunteered to help a local high school. I have an extensive basketball background including coaching and developing players. No fluff, just proven results.
I was helping the varsity team out for about a month or so when the head varsity coach asked me to coach a couple of back to back summer league games at Fullerton College. He was shocked when I told him I have coaching experience (not sure why as I told him at the initial meeting, probably thought I was just another dumb dad coach). I asked the players how did they do against the opponents in the previous games. They said the lost both games and were blown out. I was shocked based on the fact one of the schools is traditionally not very good.
We ended up winning both games by double digits. One by over 30. When the games were over, the head coach came up to me and had a shell shocked look. I asked him are you okay. He said yes. I am fine. I just have not seen the team play that inspired in years!
To be a coach you must be able to relate to each and every player. This guy Ryan is still coaching varsity boys basketball. His teams underachieve every year and I have a great knowledge why.
One example: Calling a south Korean young man a north korean terrorist is not a good thing.
