Adapting to the New Normal

It’s unchart­ed ter­ri­to­ry, but teams are find­ing new ways to stay con­nect­ed to the sports they love.

Entire spring sea­sons, prac­tices and con­di­tion­ing plans have been post­poned or can­celed as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

While sports around the world are on hia­tus this spring, the things we love about sports have blos­somed anyway.

Coaches, staff and ath­letes every­where are tak­ing action to keep the game going through coach­ing webi­na­rs, online clin­ics, staff and play­er meetings.

Right now, teams are dis­cov­er­ing new ways to strength­en the rela­tion­ships between coach­es and ath­letes. Some are light-heart­ed team-build­ing ideas:

Coaches have found prac­ti­cal and cre­ative ways to coach and train remote­ly. Leave it to a coach to see this time as a chance to sharp­en play­ers’ lead­er­ship skills and peer accountability.

Many coach­es are using tech­nol­o­gy to help every­one get bet­ter — and lik­ing it.

Even if they’re miss­ing out on the spring sea­son, coach­es are engag­ing their team and cel­e­brat­ing hard work.

Regardless of the sport, cham­pi­ons over­come adver­si­ty. These coach­es know it’s not about what you can’t do today, but what you’re doing to dom­i­nate tomorrow.

Stay healthy and stay safe.

And keep push­ing the lim­its on what’s pos­si­ble. See you on the internet.
