These philosophies are a must if you are going to be successful. They are the creator of your goals and a road map to follow, taking the program in the direction you want it to go.
As there are many component parts, it is possible portions of your philosophy may change in the short or long term, while leaving the rest intact.
There are constants in every program that do not change, year to year, regardless of changes in players, talent, assistant coaches, administrators or league officials. Some beliefs apply across the seasons.
One possible area this might occur is team rules. Say you believe that players do not throw equipment, the team’s or their own. Violation of that rule results in being taken out of the game.
Year in, year out, that rule probably would never change.
