Coach, what is your team culture all about?
Not, “what is the culture of your team?”, but, “what does ‘culture’ mean in your program?”
Is it a set of values or a way of being?
Is it up to the coach or this year’s team? Or, a bit of both?
Do players value the program culture? Should they?
What about recruits?
Does it involve everyone close to your program? Just players? Players and coaches? What about fans, trainers & strength coaches?
Or, perhaps it’s more of a je ne sais quoi spirit, something that you know when you see it or are around it, that the team exudes when the members are together.
If it’s that, how do you define it to outsiders if they ask?
Regardless of what you want your culture to be, you should work to know what it is.
