About the Podcast

Courtside Culture
How to Cultivate a Great Team Culture and Win at the Same Time
Host Dave Grendzynski is a firm believer in positive psychology, especially when it comes to building a high school basketball program. When coaches provide a positive pathway for their players and parents, they’ll start building a good team culture and the wins will take care of themselves.

On the “Courtside Culture Podcast,” we’ll talk to coaches, psychologists, authors, and players about how the right mindset causes everything else to fall into place—especially in high school. The psyche of 15-, 16-, and 17-year-old kids are very fragile and the approach a coach takes means everything.

If you’re a coach and you can learn to focus on positive emotions and building your players’ strengths, instead of repairing their weaknesses, you’ll find a role for everyone, win games, and build a good team culture at the same time.
