Back to Basics Series

We hope you enjoyed this summer’s spiritual curriculum! We invite you to review all Back to Basics content with your teams this week.

 

Here are four coach tips on how to present the Back to Basics curriculum:

  1. Pick Someone to Lead. Identify one member of your coaching staff (or even a parent volunteer) who can be responsible for reviewing Back to Basics each week. With so much going on during a practice, it can be hard to remember to fit it in, but if it someone’s specific responsibility, it’ll make it easier.
  2. Build It Into Your Practice Routine. If you haven’t already, build this time into your practice. At the end of every practice, your coach can huddle every one up and have a 5-minute debrief on this week’s Back to Basics content.
  3. Come Prepared. Come to practice prepared with a verse and what you want to focus on for the week. You can use the weekly Back to Basics content as a framework to get started. Remember, each week, coaches receive an email with a link to a handout. Within this PDF there is a brief introduction, a memory verse of the week, and some ways to apply it with your kids.
  4. Get Creative + Stick With It. Feel free to pick one element of the curriculum and stick with it. Maybe you focus in on the memory verse of the week and develop creative ways to incorporate it into practice. Maybe you give out a weekly game ball to an individual on the team who memorizes the memory verse. Do what works best for your team.
