How to control and dicipline under 14's?
I am currently coaching an under 14's 1's boys team.
Unfortunately they love to talk during drills and behave inappropriately throughout them along with not giving 100%. They are just being typical 13 year olds.
What can I do to make sure they listen to me and perform drills properly? I have tried making them run but it doesn't seem to work that well, not all kids run at 100% and some find it funny.
Should I threaten to cut court time? Write up a list of team rules and hand them out?
I must admit I should be focusing more on very basic skills, that's probably why some of the drills I run look atrocious because they aren't at that skill level yet.
Any tips or advice would be great.
