Can’t treat girls like you can boys! I’ve learned this over my coaching career. Girls have a spirit about them that you must not break! They have to LIKE AND RESPECT you for you to get the most out of them! If they like you and respect you they will run through a brick wall for you. If you lack either of those from your players...good luck! It’s not an easy balance in this game that is highly competitive.
and there is a big difference in yelling TO someone rather than AT them. there is a way to make them aware you thought they should have made the play, without not indicating to them you think they cannot play. the former will get the girl traying harder, the latter might just make them shut down.You also get more out of boys if they like and respect you. My HOF HS football coach could yell and be a hardass, but everyone liked and respected him. Why? He was fair, had time for all of his players, and never personally belittled or ignored anyone no matter how far down the depth chart they were. He won a crap-ton of games coaching multiple sports at both the HS and small college level, and I don't know anyone who ever said anything bad about him. You can yell at any athlete when the situation calls for it, but there's a pretty easy line to NOT cross if you have any clue at all.
