Football season is almost here! Some of us non-sports loving folks are moaning and groaning about more sports updates on our various social media accounts, while others are rejoicing and anxiously counting down the days. But for those who don’t necessarily feel like whipping out the tried and true tailgating necessities that come along with football season, you can take comfort in knowing that it may not all be sunshine and roses for the players either, especially when there are often so many new faces and name to recognize and remember!
Whether you have a child who plays football or you just like to watch it on the big screen at home or at your favorite sports bar, there is a lot of preparation that goes into planning the next season as soon as the first one is over.
After the Superbowl and during the off season any number of things can happen to the players on a team, they could get out of shape, get a new coach or a whole new coaching staff, or even worse they could get cut and switch to an entirely new team altogether. But one thing that is for certain during the off season is that every team will acquire new players.
Whether they are fresh out of college, or from another team, the influx of new players can prove to be a bit overwhelming for the rest of the guys that survived the standard off season restructuring.
Teams don’t always just fit together magnetically. Building professional relationships takes time just like building personal relationships. And even though it may seem like these guys are just playing a game, it’s important to keep in mind that this ‘game’ is a multi-billion dollar industry and when there is that much money on the line at all times, making sure your team becomes one cohesive unit becomes an extremely important priority. This isn’t just a matter who you’re going to each lunch with in the break room- this is football.
And while the stakes may not be quite so high for kids today who play the game, making sure that everyone on the team knows each other and builds a relationship with that person should still be a top priority for every player. Teams that work well together tend to win more games and championships. But with so little time before the school year starts a lot of these kids are already behind in building those relationships with their new team members. So what can be done to speed up the process?
What tricks of the trade to the pros practice to help them come together as a team in a short amount of time? Organized team activities, scheduled practices, and a lot of effort seems to be the way it’s done. As an example, veteran Panther’s QB is finally back at practice after and ankle surgery in March and what he came back to was a whole new core of receivers. So what did he do? He asked them to wear name tags. And when you think about it, it may not be such a bad idea – maybe not for the pro’s but the use of name tags could help the younger generations of football stars get acquainted with one another before school starts back up this fall.
