OK, so where do we begin the season? How do we make sure that we are teaching our players all that they need to know for a successful season? How do you stay on track?
You need to start. You need to create a master plan so that you have a reference point to look at. Really, to keep on track and stay on track. Sometimes we as coaches tend to focus on a few things and run out of time during the season and don't cover something and wish we had.
I learned how to get this done as I was a high school coach and visiting clinics and hearing NCAA coaches at UNC and UCLA talk about it, but how did they put it together? That was never shared? How much time did they spend on things? I asked them for information and dug deeper as I had a thirst for how to become the best coach that I could become.
Here is what I put together after gathering information from many coaches across the country.

I used this especially during the season to make sure that I was staying on track. One thing you will have to keep in mind is that you will always have to modify, adjust and adapt. This is true in all things.
