The other team starts to gain momentum, a quick goal followed by another and then another and then another, with no answer from your squad. You have gone from man to zone defense, you have changed your offensive sets, you’ve tried every other adjustment you can think of. And then your coach calls a timeout. You once again take to the field, but things have changed. The momentum has been impeded and your team has a renewed sense of confidence and direction.
Great coaches know when to call a timeout. They know when the team needs to take a step back, regroup and refocus. There are times in our lives when life is pouring it on and things are getting out of hand. Recognize when you need to slow down and center yourself.
Be a good coach and know when to call a timeout.
