General Coaching Resources
Positive Coaching Handout from Dr. Brady's presentation at the fall 2019 meeting.  If you liked what Dr. Brady had to say and you want ideas on how to implement it, Positive Coaching Alliance is an organization whose goal is to help coaches create a positive culture around their team - coach, players, parents.  Some of the stuff is paid but a lot of it is free.  It is WORK to make this happen; it won't happen by itself.

Changing the Game Project is a great website to get advice about difficult to handle problems.  There's no techincal/tactical knowledge here; it's all coaching philosophy and dealing with kids and parents.  If you want to borrow the book that the site was launched to continue, email me.  I think I still have a pdf version of it somewhere as well. You can also subscribe to his podcast

On the topic Steve covered of trying to create practices that have repetition of thinking instead of repetition of motion, The Talent Equation is a website and podcast based in England (so "football" = soccer and "hockey" = field hockey) that tries to approach ways of adding and adjusting constraints to get players to practice in game-like situations without just saying, "go scrimmage".  Read his blog post, Drills are the Drugs of Coaching, as an overview into what a traditional drill-based practice is actually teaching.
