Captains, Seven Ways to Lead Your Team (for athletes in
leadership positions and coaches)
Do not leave leadership of your teams to chance, teach your captains how to lead successfully. This presentation applies seven principles of leadership that can be used to effectively lead teams. 1) Be the first to serve and the last to expect to be served 2) Be the first to lead by example and the last to violate team standards 3) Be a lifeline of communication between the coach and the team 4) Be the first to praise others and the last to draw attention to yourself 5) Be the first to protect and defend (loyalty) and the last to criticize the team 6) Be the first to confront violations of team standards (solving problems before they impact the team 7) Be the first to encourage and last to become discouraged (mental toughness).
Redefining the Term Athlete – Life Lessons for All
Athletes (for athletes, coaches and parents)
One of the best opportunities for individual character growth in young people, happens when adults (coaches and parents) clearly identify and support behaviors that are expected and clearly define and confront behaviors that are not acceptable. Looking beyond athletic skills and identifying qualities that choices every player can make on a daily basis that will allow them to become a better person and teammate. A self-assessment tool for athletes to look at the responsibilities that come with being part of a team. This presentation challenges players to become “athletes” as well as how they can individually improve their team.
