KEYS TO TEAM (AND PERSONAL) SUCCESS
BE RESPONSIBLE: Take ownership for your choices! Blaming others and making excuses are the primary characteristics of a loser.
BE COACHABLE: Earnestly seek the advice and wisdom of your coaches.
BE ACTIVE: No championship has ever been won by people standing around waiting for someone else to do it. There is no such thing as an “accidental champion”.
BE COMMITTED: “All In” . . . every day, every play.
BE POSITIVE: Embrace every practice, every game, every play as an opportunity to improve personally and as a team. A positive attitude is contagious.
BE A TEAM PLAYER: Individual statistics and accolades are meaningless when compared to the team’s performance. Understand your role and perform it better than anyone else. Encourage others.
BE PERSISTENT: It’s not a question of getting knocked down, winners don’t stay down . . . they get back up! Over, and over, and over, and over . . .
