An important reminder for parents, coaches, and players.


Development is not a straight line from A to Z.
Development is messy, to begin with, and then you add kids to the mix with everything that entails.
Obstacles, setbacks, adversity, socialization, puberty, teammate issues, etc.

Professionals have bad games and subpar seasons (look at any HOFers career stats and you will find very down years).

It's not a straight line in any way, shape, or form. There will be setbacks all the time.
Sometimes it's not even 2 steps forward and 1 back but 1 forward and 3 back.
There are plateaus and there are breakthroughs.
There are really, really bad games and really, really good ones.

There is seemingly no progress and then a big jump forward.

The player that gives hard work, hard work, and more hard work, but is seemingly at a development plateau, and then BAM! Yes, BAM! A big leap forward because it clicked!

Stop judging players and teams with a short-term perspective of game to game or even from the beginning of a season until the end.
A lot is going on underneath, like the proverbial calm duck on the water.
The team you leave that seems "really bad" and "can't possibly be developing my child" may be "ranked top 10" in three years.

That bad player you want off your team because they are the reason you lose? Might be better than your kid when it's all said and done.
Development is a career-long journey, not a game-to-game process. Take a breath. It'll be okay.
There are never any guarantees, only opportunities to increase the chance of success.
