One policy I had was to never say anything to a player who had just lost
for one hour. Then I let them initiate the conversation. My most frequent
question was “If you had it to do over, what would you do differently?”
One kid I coached against wrote an analysis of his match immediately
after playing. “I may have to play him again. Or, my teammate may.”
Pretty smart.
