Real Change

Change will come not by finding new answers to old questions, but real change will come from abandoning the old questions, stop trying to answer them, leave them. Ask new questions and reframe the old ones. Asking the same old questions just leads to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, not a real practical solution for the problem at hand.

Authentic Leadership

To be a leader you must have followers. Carefully watch who real follows whom. Carefully watch the dynamics of a squad. The athlete who screams the most often and the loudest is often identified as the leader. Why? Because he or she is voluble and calling attention to themselves? If you observe closely the real leader is the one who says little, but when they speak everyone listens. They are there in victory and defeat with a pat on the back and an appropriate…

Ancillary Work?

To label work such at hurdle mobility drills, mini band series etc. as “ancillary work” is a misrepresentation of what that work is and what needs to be done. It is not ancillary, it is essential work, a component of any sound training program. It is basic and remedial designed to address each athlete individual needs.

S&C = Athletic Daycare

The sport coach sends the athletes to do S&C in the weight room without any idea of what they will do. There is little or no accountability of the S&C for the athlete’s performance or the lack thereof.

You need to expect and demand more than daycare if you are a sport coach.

Hi Vern-  Yes sir I have worked with Zach Clayton.  He has  a very bright future here with us.  One of our weight room favorites.  I read your blog every day and have used your Gambetta Lunge Series for years with our players here.  When Zach first got here he said "this looks familiar...."

Coach, would you mind refreshing my memory as to your reasoning behind why you don't like the manual glute-ham raise exercise? I wanted to quote you the other day but couldn't remember the specifics you discussed in a discussion a while back.

Coach Gambetta,

My name is Melissa Boldt and I am currently a Graduate Associate at Springfield College. I just wanted to share with you that I really enjoy reading your blogs on this network and have followed for quite some time now. I must say that you have by far the most intriguing and intellectual dialog and I see things through similar eyes.

 

Melissa
