5 Things That Show How Committed An Athlete Really Is.

3. Their ability to listen and carry out instructions.
4. The attitude and effort they bring daily.
5. Their lifestyle and habits outside of practice time.
The word “disciple” means to train or to teach and is the root word for “discipline”. The goal of any disciplinary action is not to punish but to correct and change a behavior. When a athlete refuses to accept the option to change it results in levels of consequences which can eventually become, “you can no longer be part of the team”.
As much as possible, eliminate the emotion from conversations, confrontation and decisions and approach each situation with calm truth… “I am for you, we can work on this together but I will hold you accountable”.
Its not the team with the best player that wins. Its the players with the best team that wins!!!
He Who Does Not Run To His Position, Will Soon Have No Position To Run To.
One Day You’ll wake up, & there won’t be anyone left to take to practice.
“I will Be accountable to God for this: What did I do with all those kids he gave me? what did I do to build his kingdom?”
I think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don’t think about it is when I’m playing it.
If you think practice is boring, Try sitting on the “BENCH”.
Losers assemble in small groups and complain about the coaches and other players. Winners assemble as a team and find ways to win.
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’” ~ Muhammad Ali
Discipline – doing the small things consistently and well – touching the lines, stepping with the correct foot, focused attention and no shortcuts to success… undisciplined teams don’t win championships. Be accountable and Compete!
