Teammates



I see so much talent on so many different teams in different types of sports. Young men and women bring so much athletic skill and abilities, which is exciting and inspiring to the game.


I would like to see more teammates on the court, field, and/or track, not individuals playing on the same team.


How do you become a good teammate?


I share with my players the idea that “we are only as good as our weakest link”. Many of my players are not familiar with this saying when I first bring it up.


It means the “individual” is not there to cast a shadow on the ones around them, they are part of a team and need to raise up everyone around them and build a group of people with the same goal.


These are the definitions of a team and teammate.


Team: a group of players forming one side in a competitive game or sport.


Teammate: a fellow member of a team.




As coaches, we need to change the definition of a team and teammate.


Team: a group of players who respect, trust and care for each other.


Teammate: a member of the team who lifts up the people around them and is not afraid to shine the light on a fellow player, but will challenge fellow players to become better.



Believe in being part of something bigger than yourself. A true team works hard and jokes around. Instills confidence and supports one another. A true teammate gives all they have to make everyone around them better
