One way to ensure your team is onboard with the SmartMessage Center and how it works to their benefit, it is a great idea to talk to them about it early in the season – before the season actually even starts is ideal. Here is a tip on how to communicate the SmartMessage Center benefits and ease of use at the very first team meeting.

 

At the first team meeting, explain to your parents to be on the lookout for a message from you providing them with some instructions on how to make sure they receive their team SmartMessages. Then send the team a regular email instructing them to add do-not-reply@circleup.com to their address book or “safe senders” list in their email service or email program. This helps to ensure that the messages always land in their inbox instead of their spambox! CircleUp is our partner that provides the SmartMessage service and by doing this step, you will help ensure that the SmartMessages you send will be received by everyone.

Excerpt from the Forward to The Power of Double-Goal Coaching by Jim Thompson

By Phil Jackson

Positive Coaching Alliance National Spokesperson

Head Coach, Los Angeles Lakers

 

The Power of Double-Goal Coaching, Jim Thompson’s latest book, is a terrific, concise summary of the impact a character-focused coach can have – for a season or a lifetime.

 

It is a practical book coaches can use to get better results from players while providing an ethically superior approach to competitive sports. When coaches regularly use these positive forms of motivation, they find they have willing, eager athletes on their teams.

 

In particular, our coaches, parents, and athletes need to understand and embrace what Jim calls the ROOTS of Honoring the Game: respect for Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, and Self. Honoring the Game is needed at all levels of sports.

I have personal experience with how honoring the opponent is a concept that works. In 1990, my Chicago Bulls were defeated for the third consecutive time by the Detroit Pistons. We had lost to them in the first round, the second round, and in the finals of the Eastern Conference playoffs. It was easy to build up dislike for the Pistons “Bad Boys” after such futility. Each year had brought a confrontation, from a benchclearing brawl to take-downs and flagrant fouls, one of which resulted in a concussion to our young star, Scottie Pippen.

 

As a result, we had developed a raw anger toward their team that had clouded our abilities to function instinctively as a team. I used something I’d learned from the Lakota of the Dakotas. They had a mortal enemy in the Crow, but they honored them because they were wonderful warriors and to fight against the Crow demanded bravery, cunning, and teamwork. I borrowed that theme. The conflict brought about the best of both tribes. So rather than getting angry and frustrated in a contest with a physically stronger team like the Pistons, and flailing out in futility, we resorted to meeting them with focused willpower, resilience, and teamwork. We honored the Pistons ability to compete and it worked in our favor, with six NBA championships for the Bulls.

 

I agreed to be the National Spokesperson for PCA when Jim Thompson asked me because I believe so strongly in the kind of sports culture that PCA is fighting for. I am proud of the 10 NBA championship rings that I have earned as a coach, but I also want the success of PCA to be part of my legacy.

 

As a leader, coach, parent, or athlete, I hope you will make it part of your legacy also. Together let’s transform youth sports to be all it should be in the lives of our nation’s youth.
