Trying to be nice doesn't always give the best results.

If you get to training on time and get set up, and if most of your players are ready to go on time, waiting for two or three stragglers to arrive 5 to 15 minutes late kills team spirit and sense of seriousness.

Start practice on time, and make sure that kids who arrive late understand that they are late.  Don't let them off the hook.  If you are consistent in starting on time, and if you don't ever wait for stragglers, many more players will arrive on time and team practices will be more productive.
