Short Term & Long Term Planning
This show is packed with great information, I talk with NHL certified player agent Manny Schmidt of Link Management International.
We look at everything that impacts a player’s preparation and in game performance. There is a lot to consider. For example, take the Taylor Hall trade this summer or any player move for that matter. What does a player have to go through in an organizational change? Change of home, city, coach, teammates….the list goes on.
With any player move, there is so much that goes on behind the scenes that the team, the agent, and the player have to work diligently to limit distraction and allow the player to focus on training & competing.
What about moves in the minor leagues of professional sport? As players move up, move down, get released and then resign, there can be a real yo-yo effect and that doesn’t even include the travel inside of the competitive schedule.
Just imagine changing teams several time in a season. How do you maintain game performance?
It’s not always the best idea to play up. Too many times, we have seen young players moved up to only sit or fail. There is nothing wrong with being a stud and mastering the game at the level you are at.
Today, we’ll look at when the right time is to move up, to play up , and how to know if you are ready.
