PRE-GAME (no less than 10 minutes before game)
The key to starting a game off on the right path is a KILLER pre-game— use this outline and sample script as a guide. Put this into your own words—
#1: Rule: ask the legal question— get it out of the way at the beginning!
1. Be PROFESSIONAL– (at least look & act like you know what you’re doing)
2. Don’t be late– make the commitment & plan for delays (i.e., traffic during rush hour)
3. No Excuses– take accountability for your actions or inactions
4. No Give Backs (games)- I count on you so you can count on me
