    #wvhsfbchat A3) We have 3 coaches, including myself. If we dont buy in, there is no support. We talk constantly, and swap ideas daily

      Q3: how do you get total buy in from your staff and do you define roles within your coaching staff to develop culture? #wvhsfbchat
  • Coach_Urquhart Jan 1 @ 9:31 PM EST

  • Mr_Tanner23 Jan 1 @ 9:34 PM EST
    A2:vote in leadership council, have leaders draft teams and do off season competition (gpa,wt room,service).Preseason retreat #wvhsfbchat
  • vandyfan13 Jan 1 @ 9:35 PM EST
    A4: Depends on damage, & if it's consistent or once. Correct if possible, cut loose if necessary. Learned the hard way in '15 #wvhsfbchat
  • rmacblue Jan 1 @ 9:35 PM EST
    A4: We've seen this - they LEAVE. Culture takes over and they just don't seem to stick around very long! #wvhsfbchat
  • Tpeck2 Jan 1 @ 9:35 PM EST
    #wvhsfbchat Player, we get team leaders involved first, to deal with it on the field; then a coach meeting, which has lead to benchings 1/2
  • CoachBlacha Jan 1 @ 9:35 PM EST
    A4: @Coach_Sneed_EM this works lol #wvhsfbchat
    In reply to @Coach_Sneed_EM
  • CoachJohnson4MC Jan 1 @ 9:35 PM EST
    A4 if player, talk w/position coach, then goes to soph HC, then to varsity HC. No clue about coaches, hope I never find out #wvhsfbchat
  • CoachBehnfeldt Jan 1 @ 9:35 PM EST
    A4: communication and remediation. Have to address issue and offer solutions. If continually a problem, removal is warranted #wvhsfbchat
  • Tpeck2 Jan 1 @ 9:36 PM EST
    #wvhsfbchat A4) loss of role, suspension, etc... depends. Coach? When and if it happens, let you know.
  • coachadkisson Jan 1 @ 9:36 PM EST
    A4. If players don't get those players right coaches step into to try & remedy. If coaches are damaging they won't last long #wvhsfbchat
  • WVFBCHAT - Moderator Jan 1 @ 9:36 PM EST
    A4: we are like @rmacblue here I want to set up a culture that when someone isn't adhering it is policed by the players! #wvhsfbchat

  • Skillutt28 Jan 1 @ 9:38 PM EST
    A4. For players, Team leaders usually try to correct it. If that isn't enough, then meeting with the HC. #wvhsfbchat
  • PHSvikingFball Jan 1 @ 9:38 PM EST
    A4 w/a player, I will have a meeting one on one or w/coaches. If it continues, committee of 2 kids from each grade will meet #wvhsfbchat
