As a coach, your job is complicated. You need to take a number of very different skill sets and personalities and mold them together into a unit, which can work well in a very coordinated way. At the most basic level, a team which works well together has more of a chance of winning a game than a team, which has problems functioning in a cohesive fashion. That being said, you may wonder what some methods of team building are and how to use them with your own group of players in order to prepare them for the challenges ahead.
In my opinion, one of the biggest problems facing any team is change. It doesn’t matter what level you are playing at because there will always be changes to the make-up of your team, from year to year or season to season. You will find that players who have been together through several years have a better chance of working well together because they have played together before got to know eachother. Introducing new players into an existing team dynamic can be a problem since it can upset an already established order.
