Varsity , Ju nior Varsity
Decisions:
1, promote the whole JV team to the Varsity boat for this race
2,switch a small number of individual members of the two boats

Why does the Varsity team lose to the JV team?
Rowing is teamwork sports - require the coordination and cooperation among teammembers
Varsity --- top8 players ( excellent techniques, strength and conditioning )--- cant function well as a team ( the whole less than the sum of parts)
Reasons: don't have a leader (coordination gain trust and repect,moral )
Several team disrupter , self-centered, focus on individual success instead of shared goal.
Poor relationship with each other, blame each other instead of working together to solve the problem.
Poor communication, aware of the problem (Jim personality) never communicate
High stressed, top players—higher expection . Affect their emotions and performance,( stimulate hidden anxiety emotion aggressive)

What should coach P have done differently earlier in the season to resolve this problem? At exactly what point should he have intervened differently? Why?

Individual strength is useless function well as a team
Respect to each other, communication - avoid critique balme each other
