Individual meetings

An individual meeting with your coach is essentially a performance evaluation, and in a performance evaluation the most important question to ask is, “What do I need to do to improve?”

Most student-athletes won’t ask. They’ll listen; they’ll argue; they’ll complain about their teammates; but they won’t be vulnerable. They won’t let go of their ego enough to ask, “Where am I failing?” It’s too scary.

Ironically, an entire individual meeting can go by without you getting the information you need unless you ask for it.
