He really was not a fan of that.
We made lots of friends that event
Guys I want ask you what do you call when your snake player will be bunkered? Do you use any additional code or you just call something like "he's coming" ? We use "bomb" but I'm not sure that it works good enough. When we make special drills for the communication it is OK but in real game it's different. We don't have enough experience and in our days the coaching is from the dorito side and this makes the things more complicated.
by convention 'mugger' has become a standard for someone bunkering anywhere on the field. But it doesn't matter, so long as your team consistently use the same word (like bomb) and will react to it immediately no matter what field you're playing on then it will work.
I tend to yell the route the mugger is taking - ie "tape!" or "highway!"
@Dave284 , we did good that game
Guys, can you recommend me any ideas, exercises or tips to improve the talking during the game? Unfortunately all players in our team don't communicate enough. We've tried some things but the result isn't what we want.
I’m very impressed by communication skills in “Wired” videos:
The Wired videos are really good to be honest when the players are not pissing around the best thing to do is train to communicate, Teams always train to win the game it doesn't matter if you win or loose the game if your training communication, If the coach gives me limited information suck as G count and location its very easy to work out what your next move can be
see below our teams bunker names for the next CPPS event.
the corners are typically back left back right every event the names slightly change but they stay on the same side of the field, Orange and apple will always be the first bunkers left and right, the door is always the bunker before entering the snake.
If you have a closed practice, have a coach stand at the back and help prod people verbally. Say things like "What bunkers are hot" "What's the count" "Who's on bag 1?" You don't even need guns or paint to do these drills. Also if people aren't listening, coach can shoot people in the rear to help motivate
Getting into the habit of communicating, answering those questions, will go a long way in improving overall communication.
Normally a back center player helps relay the calls from each side of the field. Basically acting as a repeater, and also he/she can see the majority of the field and will initiate most calls.
So as a back player, I'd call 2 d-side, or 3 snake on break out, by looking at how many guys are aiming each direction. On the break I'd be yelling (in example above) Orange, bag 1 hot. Kill 1 orange, (teammate) look inside, or wrap on bag1.
I'd probably hear things like, "back left, and snake 1", So I'd yell out "back left, back left, snake 1 snake 1 snake 1"
Normally I'd repeat kill counts and major bunker moves 3 times so people can process what I'm saying.
Also try and pitch your voice lower, it's easier to understand.
I've heard some players get excited and climb like 4 octaves when they yell and it's just like listening to a kettle scream. You can't understand a thing.
Both those videos are me at a practice the day before the Puget Mills event. The top one I get a late start to my calls, because they flooded D side and I saw diddly. I had to rely on the guys on my d side to make the calls.
Second vid, 3 went my left and I got wrecked up by 3 guns.
