Team unity is a crucial element to the success and the balance of any team. If the team is fractured and not working as one, you will quickly find that the team will fail in all aspects. A team that works together in harmony and strives towards common goals and achievements will have a far higher rate of success. It is up to you, the coach, to oversee the team’s development, but a coach can only do so much work, it then comes down to the players and their overall efforts in deciding if the team will work as one, or not.
While some people think that just having one or two strong players can be enough, you are only as strong as your weakest link. At the same time you cannot always blame issues on an individual. Working to correct problems as a unit will go a long way, as opposed to working on a single person. Once you have your team working together as one, the rest of the pieces will end up falling into place with very little delay. While you won`t get to championship calibre overnight, the improvements will come fast when your team is working with each other.
