How can I deal with my players better?

When to Yell

It's been said that a coach yells when they've reached the limits of what they know. Especially at the varsity level, it's usually not effective or helpful to yell at your players after they've made an error. If they're varsity players, they already feel bad enough for making a mistake. They're punishing themselves in their minds, and reprocessing the information they've just gathered in order not to make that mistake again. It is counterproductive to add guilt or anger to that mix. Better to let them work it out, offer encouragement, and let them move on.
