10 Things Players Need To Know: Be Coachable


Stuck at the same level? Let me ask you, are you coachable?

Most of my life has been consumed by being an athlete but now I’ve been given the opportunity to teach other athletes this great game, as a college softball coach. On my journey, I’ve learned many things that can benefit ball players at any level. This series is just a few of the things that have helped me as an athlete and also as a coach.

Be Coachable
So many athletes think they can get away with just being athletic. If you seem to be stuck at the same level in your sport and don’t know why, it may be time to reevaluate your ability to take coach’s criticism.

As an average athlete, if you are able to make adjustments more quickly and efficiently than your fellow teammates, then you will go further and see the most growth. If you assume you’re better than learning from a coach’s knowledge, you’ll be left in the dugout or off the team.
