During summer training camp, tempers flare in the contentious environment. Fights are not uncommon. Some coaches encourage the excitement, while others admonish the practice.
At the University of Washington, head coach Chris Petersen does not tolerate fisticuffs. If two players get into a fight, they are faced with an unusual punishment. Instead of running laps or getting kicked out of practice, the two perpetrators hold hands and walk “Lover’s Lane.”

More coaches should adopt this fascinating practice.
