Softball Player interview questions
Largely, when it comes to team dynamics and culture – it is the adults (parents and coaches) who have the most input. They are the ones who have the complaints (often passing them onto their children), who air their grievances, and who are spring-loaded to shout “FOUL” if they feel their daughter has been slighted in any way. The coaches are the ones empowered with the final decision-making.
In fact, the best way to get the truth is to allow the girls to scatter across the field and answer the questions on their own, rather than sending it home for homework. This way you can be sure you are getting the PLAYERS replies, rather than replies that may be influenced by the adults in their life.
We also believe that while kids should remain coach-able, and open to their coaches advice and opinions and respectful – the kids should also be included in the TEAM PLAN. And just as players and parents grow – coaches can grow too by offering their players an opportunity to so to speak review their performance as coaches, and give their input into what can help solidify and improve the team.
Interestingly, the kiddos – the ones out there playing and working, don’t always share their parents or coaches feelings. The kids sort of ‘get it,’ and are simply stuck between their parents and coaches – hoping that both sides can be happy so they can just continue doing what they love.
Today, we challenge all the coaches out there to pint out these questions and hand them to their players at the next practice. Start the practice with a dialogue that you value the players input, and want them to be 100% honest. Allow anonymity so the girls feel safe explaining that ONLY coaches will see the answers, bring pens for the players to do it right them, and DO NOT INVOLVE the parents.
A great way to begin your softball season with some insight into your players is to spend some time with each player individually and find out where they are at as far as their own game and their mental game. This is a great softball pre season player interview that you can do with them before you start. It’s a good idea to conduct the interview and get their answers as you go through the questions and then send it to them in an email so that they have a record of it and something for them to reflect on.
