Leadership SOcial

Leading Better Together—I believe we can accomplish anything and everything we want in life if we share what we know with each other.

If you have ideas and tips that have helped you be a leader for your team, we would love to share them with our community. Please enter your thoughts in the spaces below and we’ll review them each month to select and share. Thank you!

“I try to use my teammate’s names as much as possible because it get’s their attention more quickly and I think it makes them feel more connected.”

Brooke, soccer, Missouri

“I have a calendar on my iPad that I use to schedule my practices, strength workouts, and speed/agility exercises. After each one, I rate my effort from 1 – 3, where 1 is low, 2 is medium and 3 is high. I try to have mostly 2s and 3s.”

Sam, lacrosse, Massachusetts

“I do a drill called ‘My Bad’ where I have my teammates throw me bad passes on purpose and I have to adjust to them, catch, and shoot. That way, when I get into a game and a pass isn’t great, it doesn’t mess me up.”

Monique, basketball, Mississippi

“I have a calendar on my wall, and I put a red X in the day’s box if I do something to get better. I try not to break the the chain. So far, my record is 63 days of red X’s.”

Maddie, volleyball, Utah

“I take note of my major training milestones so I can add them to my training bank. When I begin to doubt whether I can accomplish a new milestone, I return to my training bank as a reference.”

“When competing I find it fun to play cycling tag with other competitors. When I pass them on course I tell them “Tag you’re it” knowing they will tag me back. It makes the 56 mile ride more enjoyable for me and the other participants.”

Amy, cycling & triathlon, South Carolina

”I play pick-up games with college players in the summer so I’m getting used to playing against bigger, faster players as I get ready for my senior year and then playing in college myself.”

Vanessa, basketball, Maryland

“My team started a zero-hour workout group where we lift weights before school so we are getting stronger during the season when we are practicing after school every day.”

Sophie, softball, Florida
