Develop a Long Range Vision of the Team

IMG_5327As the excitement continues to rise, second year teams should create a vision and a success plan in place that clearly outlines goals and expectations.

  1. Meet with your coaches and volunteer staff to design a vision for your team. This can be as simple as jotting down ideas and starting to form committees to carry out expectations.
  2. Set attainable goals and work towards achieving them before taking on new challenges
  3. Determine the long range commitment of your staff. This will help you as the head coach decide what you want your team to look like down the road.
  4. Encourage volunteers to commit to at least two years with the team. This will ensure that you will always have enough help working on your goals.
  5. Here are a few things to include in your team vision:
    • Team size
    • Financial status
    • Skill and competition level
    • Make up of grade and gender
    • Resources
    • Coaching staff
    • Integration into the community
    • Opportunities for growth
