What am I going to learn? 

DEFINE the value which needs to relate to the sport and be able to translate off the field. 

MODEL the value by rehearsing it in practice.  Think of all the different situations the value could occur and practice what you expect vs. the incorrect behavior.

SHAPE the value by explaining what is acceptable to you as the coach.

REINFORCE the value.  Recognize the value being used by the athlete.  

WALK AWAY with your own customized practice plan for using teachable moments.
