Chris McGown and Tom Melton

Team Mr. Potato Head? What’s that all about? Our guests today are Gold Medal Squared coaches Chris McGown & Tom Melton and are here to help you learn the best practices for planning practices.

Chris is the son of the legendary Carl McGown and the former head coach of Brigham Young University men’s volleyball. Tom is Chris’ partner in Gold Medal Squared and has been coaching club volleyball for several years. Collectively, Chris & Tom have years of experience in teaching new concepts and skills to players of all ages and levels.

“Teach what you know and know what you teach.” That short sentence is a great mantra to hang on to while you plan practices and think about the future of your team. Tom says it’s easier to really know 3-5 drills that you can tweak to ensure players are getting meaningful reps than it is to try and memorize a million different drills.

Join us as we discuss practice planning with Chris & Tom and to learn more about Team Mr. Potato Head!
