We just won our first home dual of the year but I came away with a deep disappointment in the effort and the coach-ability of my kids tonight. We wrestled a school that had good strong athletes but with no real technical ability to speak of. My kids had the edge as far as technique and experience but they negated that by tying up and letting the stronger kids almost level the playing field by using there strength. Time and time again I told them to break the tie use good motion and set up shots and since the other school would not take a shot create stalling points. I don't know it just seems that this year they are content to hang on and stall out as long as they can say they are on the team.
I think this week for practice I will forbid the use of the tie and make them work on the outside. Any suggestions are helpful.
I do have some great kids but this is getting old.
