Coaches must develop their own definition of competitive, then recruit and train players accordingly. Because every coach is different, the methods used to foster competitive environments differ from gym to gym. At Penn State, Rose recruits players who can handle his bluntness, and he trains players to compete (and meet their potential) by developing and simulating pressure situations.
Players must be mentally tough. According to Rose, whose teams have won 6 NCAA championships in the past 8 seasons, this entails concentrating in pressure situations, handling criticism, thriving in hostile environments, getting over bad calls, weathering the storm, drawing strength from the challenge, maintaining even energy levels, adapting in crisis situations, processing information at a high level and executing when necessary.
At the end of the video, Rose highlights different drills he uses to train competitiveness and explains his thought process for selecting drills.
