I don’t know how it’s with you as a coach, but we get a lot of DM’s from our players through Instagram.
Initially I was responding to these messages 1 by 1 until I realized that some of the questions kept returning.
The most common DM’s I get as the “play-perform” director (our take on athletic director) are the following:
- “Coach how do I fix knee pain?”
- “Coach how do I jump higher?”
- “Coach how do I sleep better?”
- “Coach how do I train when I’m injured?”
- “Coach how do I meditate?”
- “Coach how do I gain muscle?”
- “Coach how do I get the right mindset?”
To make answering these questions manageable, we’ve set up specific theory and practical sessions during off-season, made Youtube lists with exercises and organised group Zoom lectures.
We thought it would be cool to give all players at our Elite Europe summer camp a poster with couple of pointers and mini-habit suggestions – so they have a reminder when they’re back home.
