Coach's Corner


NO EXCUSES and NO REGRETS
Jan 4, 2010, 1:44 am

Mid Season Update 2009-2010 Novi Varsity Season:

12 regular season games played. 12 regular season games to play.  6 League games completed and 3 league games to play before Conference and Association crossover games.

 At this point, we have a minimum of 13 games to play with the potential to play a maximum of 18 total games. 

During the month of January we have 16 practices and 5 games. We have 16 practices and 7 games during February. In March, we have 6 games and 6 practices planned. TEAM, this means you have a potential of 56 more days left and it’s over.

Novi Overall Record 10-1-1

Novi KLAA Record 5-0-1

USHSHO Rankings: #6 overall in the State, and #3 in Division II.

Goals set by the TEAM before the beginning of the season: “To Win the Next Game ” in pursuit of the Conference, Association, and State Championship “One game at a Time.”

In season goals: “To beat” Davison in order “To play” Cranbrook. “To be accepted” into the Showcase in order “To play” 2 top teams in the State. “To beat” Northville 2x’s. “To go to” Calumet and Hancock.

 

Strengths: Talent, Speed, Depth, Scoring against weak teams, Power Play, ability to protect the puck, ability to possess the puck, and the ability to move the puck.

Weaknesses: Grit and Determination. TEAM defense and work ethic.  Consistent TEAM System execution in all three zones. Back checking, Shot blocking, and toughness on the walls. I vs. We. My points vs. TEAM points.  Practice habits and intensity. TEAM Commitment and Dedication to Purpose and Mission. Personal Battles and styles of play.

Plan to use strengths and improve weaknesses: Harder Work in practice, on and off the ice. Continued TEAM Building. Elimination of any and all ice time for those not demonstrating the work ethic, commitment, and dedication to be the best we can be.

 

To an outsider, everything “appears” to be good for our TEAM so far: Our record is good. Our Goals For and Goals Against are good. Our rankings are very good. Our TEAM system structure looks good. Puck movement looks good. Talent is good. Our processes are good: We practice good, we compete good, we work good, we prepare good.

It is my personal belief and philosophy that great processes yield great results. When one consistently pushes oneself to prepare better, work harder, practice more and better, perform better, and so on…One becomes better and eventually, Great.  

My concern in the pursuit of a State Championship is our TEAM satisfaction with good and not consistently demonstrating a desire and willingness to do what must be done to become great. Occasionally, we have each and every player working hard, paying attention, and trying to get better in practice but it is not consistent. Occasionally, we block shots, compete with grit and determination, win the battles on the walls, and play well defensively but it is not consistent in the games or practices.

From this day forward, I do not care if I have to get down to 1 goalie, 3 defensemen, and 6 forwards that give me everything they have for the good of the TEAM. (Currently, that is all I have that give me what they have to give on a daily basis). I will no longer allow anything less than the TEAM and personal pursuit of excellence. If I do not believe I am getting the best each one can give on and off the ice on a daily basis, I will be removing the student-athlete from the practice and not playing the respective student-athlete in the game. This is not a threat. I am not here to play games. I am here to coach to the highest common denominator with the necessary work ethic, commitment and attitude to become a champion. This is the standard that will be enforced beginning at today’s practice.

Why now Coach? Because it has taken myself, and the coaching staff, the first half of this season’s practices and games to evaluate our players and TEAM on a daily basis in both games and practices and this is the course of action I decided to take in order for this TEAM to have an opportunity to achieve it’s goals.

The path of least resistance by me, and the TEAM, will not be followed any longer. Discipline and hard work are required. We will not only pursue our goals, we will achieve them!! We will not only “play” the top teams in the State at the Showcase, we will “beat” them. We will not just be going to Calumet and Hancock, we will “defeat” Calumet and Hancock. The Conference, Association, and State Championship will not only be pursued: They will be achieved!!

NO EXCUSES and NO REGRETS!!!
