Back for my second appearance on the Just Fly Performance Podcast, I recently had the opportunity to talk with Joel Smith on an often overlooked aspect of coaching: creating a team culture that transfers from the weightroom to the court. In this episode I go into detail about my transition from college strength and conditioning to a head basketball coach at college of Marin and give insights on how I tie the weightroom to what I expect on the court as a coach.  We also chat on ideas on using the weightroom as a conduit to enhancing communication, motivation and overall culture. Hope you enjoy it and give it a share 😁 Create a great day everybody!

A few take-away quotes Joel pulled from the show:

“First and foremost, the transfer from the weightroom to the basketball court is confidence and self-belief”

 

“You are either a drain or a faucet, you are either giving to the group, or you are taking away from the group”

 

“I try to step back once we establish our expectations and let players run a lot of it”

 

“Responsibility + accountablity = success”

 

“A marker of a great team culture is when you as a coach can step away and everything runs itself and the players are making everything happen”

 

“Not getting out of your comfort zone is one of the top things that holds athletes back from reaching their potential”

 

“Don’t mistake activity for achievement”

 

“Your effort has to match your expectations”
