Editor’s note from Brian Williams: I believe that whatever is recorded and rewarded will improve.
You might not have the resources to use all of these, but here is a very thorough player performance grading scale.
Hopefully, at the least, you can find a couple of items that you can track to emphasize the areas that you need to be good at to be successful
|OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCE GRADE VALUES
TOTAL POINTS SCORED +1
PLAYER’S OFFENSIVE GRADE ***
|DEFENSIVE PERFORMANCE GRADE VALUES
PRESSURE DEFENSE +2
PLAYER’S DFENSIVE GRADE ***
OVERALL PERFORMANCE GRADE
TOTAL DEFENSIVE GRADE
TOTAL OVERALL GRADE
Offensive Grade/Minutes Played
Defensive Grade/Minutes Played
Total Overall Grade/Minutes Played
Offensive and Defensive “Leaders” wear “Leaders”
Practice Jerseys, have their name on the Leader
Boards both in the gym and locker room, have
stickers put on their locker and are the next
