At the start of last football season, the NFHS published a story laying out the five habits coaches must establish to build high school programs.

Those five habits include:

  1. Praise loudly, criticize softly.
  2. Make everyone in your program feel important.
  3. Don’t interrupt practice drills to talk; keep the athletes moving.
  4. Always be willing to discipline disruptive players, regardless of ability.
  5. Be open to new ideas and techniques.

For more detail on any of these habits, visit the NFHS website.
