Many players think this on a regular basis. They get frustrated by the fact that it appears that their coach is very demanding and expects a great deal from them. They waste a great deal of time and energy on these feelings which gets them nowhere.
Well, once upon a time I heard a quote which I think we should constantly share with our players when they start to feel like their coaches are too hard on them.
When your coach is pushing you hard, it means they care. When your coach is demanding it means your coach thinks you can accomplish great things. When your coach holds you accountable it means that they have high hopes for you and want to see you accomplish great things.
So ,for most players the bigger concern should be if their coach stops being hard, pushing or holding them accountable.
That’s probably a much bigger problem!
