  • Activities should be meaningful and fun.
  • Fundamentals and practice are the building blocks for a successful athlete.
  • Coaches are a key role model.
  • Every team member’s responsibility is to encourage one another.
  • Today’s superstar could be tomorrow’s bench warmer and vice versa.
  • The importance of commitment and responsibility.
