If you are a coach, try beginning practice by telling players the entire
practice plan. You probably have it written down already. Just hand it
out. It is the responsibility of a good coach to know the skills his
players need to develop. In that plan include a time period where the
players decide what is best for the team or them personally, based on
the last game. If players have a hard time speaking with coaches, they
should write down the skills that are important for them to learn.
