The greatest coach of all, John Wooden, said two things that stick with me. One, he thought he did a better coaching job in some years that they did not win the championship. Two, he felt like he did things in the early years that hurt his teams from winning it all, because he wanted it so much. Youth coaches should learn from the best, focus less on winning and more on player development. Only good things come from that focus.
