Coaches: Define Your Core Values

Sports by itself doesn’t teach character—coaches and parents do. Great coaches hold their players accountable to standards higher than victory. What do you stand for? Good work habits or shortcuts? Poise or temper? Teamwork or selfishness? When we watch your team, what will we see from your players? Be specific. Have a philosophy with an action statement: “This is what we believe and this is what we will do.”
