A program isn't just for one year - building a program the right way can carry you through the good times and the bad.

Take a seat in the office of University of Florida Head Coach Tim Walton as he shares his coaching philosophy that has produced back-to-back SEC Championships and back-to-back SEC Coach of the Year accolades.

Coach Walton breaks down his philosophy into four major categories:

  • Building a Foundation - Includes hiring assistants, prioritizing, being a coach, discipline and more.
  • Out-of-Season Training - Learn to establish goals and practice plans, define roles and active rest versus rest.
  • In-Season Training - Develop an in-season check off list, keeping athletes mentally strong, batting order, knowing your personnel and more.
  • Evolution of a Coach - Includes insights into team rules, working smart versus hard, communication and "new school" approaches to practice.

Within each category, Walton shares his insights, ideas and experiences — what's worked and what hasn't worked.

This in-depth analysis of successful coaching will help you grow as a coach and build a strong program for years to come.
