How do we define effort in sports? How do we measure accountability? How do promote and encourage and teach all the key intangibles that make sports so fascinating?
Just ask my favourite coach. He’s back and this time he’s making things easier than ever for me.
For Geno Auriemma, the Head Coach of the University of Connecticut’s Women’s Varsity Basketball team, when it comes to questions about effort, the answer rests with the players.
So let’s just ask them.
100 Bucks If You Get From Here to There & Back in 10 Seconds
The exercise is simple enough. Coach Geno asks his players to run to the end of the gym and back. Then he watches the run, shrugs, and asks for a second run. Only this time, he tells the players he’ll give them $100 if they make the run in under ten seconds. You have to actually show them the hundred dollar bill for it to work, too.
