KADE KITTLEY - RULE HIGH SCHOOL
I took over a struggling program at my hometown in Rule TX. The year before I arrived, the team didn’t finish the season due to low numbers. I accepted the job and my first season we finished a dismal 2-7 and had 7 players.
That offseason/summer I really started to read and apply what I learned in Culture Defeats Strategy by Coach Randy Jackson.
The biggest 'take homes' from CDS we have used at Rule are:
- core values
- how to implement a true offseason program based on competition
- players earning everything
- 'how to bring the juice'
- the importance of getting 1% better each day
My second year at Rule we had 15 players come out and we finished 5-5 on the season with a lot of young talent coming and our JH won the district championship. I am grateful for all the help Coach Jackson has done for me and my program. We will continue to create an intentional culture here and I firmly believe we will never look back.
I have already begun to use some of Coach Jackson's philosophies and systems from Culture Defeats Strategy 2 and his digital resources as well. We are excited about our program in Rule. Use Coach Jackson's systems and you will see your team improve as well.
