There are many ways that coaches prepare for the season.
For me as a coach, I like to get myself mentally prepared. I work out, watch old game film, watch NHL hockey, watch college hockey, read journals and articles, and start communicating daily with my players. I start a line of communication so I can get to know the players coming in to the program.
When I talk to my players, especially the newer ones, I can start to understand how they view and see the game. This allows me to better understand which players are grinders and/or playmakers, who is conservative, and who is more aggressive. Because of this line of communication, this translates into how I pick systems. If I know my players, I know what they’ll be good at doing.
