The heart of every team and player experience is the coach. Coaches have a choice of
going down one of two paths. One is a win-based approach. The other is often
called developmental, but I prefer to call it "relationship- and experience-based coaching. "
Win-approach coaching is the most common by far (especially these days). It involves short benches, and scheduling more and more games to build a winning record. As a result, the dialogue between coach and players is one-sided and mostly
counter-productive. It can result in brawls during the post-game handshake line, reckless play, lack of
respect for the rules, opponents, officials, coaches and the game itself.
