When wins and losses are on the line, can we expect coaches, players, fans and parents to uphold a positive culture? The answer must be, "YES!" One way to get there is by reinforcing with everyone in your organization:
Involvement in sports is a privilege that must never be dishonored.
Developing positive character traits in young athletes must come first.
Capitalize on the learning opportunities inherent in coaches and athletes pursuing their greatest potential.
When tensions run high, adults who demonstrate a high level of moral courage teach young athletes an invaluable lesson.
