Things to Avoid 101 (add to)
Number of sprints was in reverse order of how much they played, since games cut into conditioning time if you're not playing much.
Kids who played all or almost all of the game had none. Everyone else lined up and started doing sprints, and the coaches would have kids drop out based on how much they played. Last kids going were ones who had played very little or not at all. Kids all seemed fine with it.
Man, that makes sense. And kudos to the kids if they're fine with it. But I can imagine it really sucking for some kid who's sad and disappointed for riding the pine the whole game and now he's running gassers while the rest of the team watches.
Do or Don'ts? My 2 cents....
DON'T fall in love with your schemes.
DO fall in love with the way you practice.
