What exactly does “playing the right way” mean?
It’s not too hard to understand. But it takes a few lessons. I firmly believe the learning begins at an early age.
As a coach, parent and teacher, it’s our duty to teach the children the right way to play.
Here are the 12 characteristics of someone who plays the right way:
1-ATTITUDE – Positive over negative.
2-MOTIVATION – Always be ready to go.
3-CHARACTER – Be a good person.
4-TEAMMATE – Help others succeed.
5-WORK ETHIC – Nothing gets done without it.
6-PPTPW – Got to be tough.
7-CONFIDENCE – Know you can get it done.
8-THE BIG E’S – Energy. Effort. Enthusiasm.
9-LOVE – Do it for love.
10-COMMITMENT – Can’t give up and quit.
11-NO EXCUSES – Get it done, no matter what.
12-FAILING IS NOT FAILURE – Get back up when knocked down.
