How Coaches Adapt To Meet Individual Player Needs

Share This Resource

Ursula Doll, Girls' Basketball Coach at Casa Grande Union High School (Casa Grande, AZ), explains how she adapts her coaching style to meet each of her players' needs. For example, some players are more emotional and passionate than others, so she approaches each type differently. As a younger coach, Doll says in this video, she thought it was up to the players to adjust their personalities to meet her coaching style, but now she knows better.

This video was shot as part of a panel discussion among winners of PCA's Double-Goach Coach® Award Presented by TeamSnap at PCA's 14th Annual National Youth Sports Awards Dinner and Auction Sponsored by Deloitte. The panel moderator was two-time World Cup Soccer Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist Julie Foudy (@JulieFoudy), a PCA National Advisory Board Member.
