I'm asking for advice here from other experienced coaches I've been coaching at a local high school for about 4 years now. My first few years were great our team made the provincials every year which a strong mix of boys and girls. But for the pass 2 years, this year mainly most of our veteren players have graduated. Therefore leaving me with our back ups from last year. They've been playing on and off and I don't think it's enough, but we are still going to the provincial tournament this year with a weak girls side. Well some of their techqnies are ok but still hve alot of room for improvement. But from what Im seeing alot of them are flat lining. The main reason I believe that they r not improving is because lack o aggression.... These kids are too nice! They dot mind losing that much... Which makes me question their desire to win... So I'm just wondering what can I do to make them more agressive with the attack and have more fire coming out of their veins. And for future references, how do u guys select complete beginners to develop?
