Baseball coaching tips of the day
Your daily and season long message to athletes should be about the traits that build character.
Putting those together gives coaches the pep talk before the big games. You can touch a little on each of the above:
Pride - “You have earned your way here; no one gave it to you. Effort - I know you will give your all, and that is all anyone can ever expect. Empathy, courage, teamwork - Things will get tight out there, play without fear, and trust in each other. Honesty - Your preparation will pay off. As long as you give your best effort, you have succeeded. Gratitude - I want everyone to know that the coaches are already proud of you. Contentment - Your parents will be proud whether we win or lose, too, if we give our best. Loyalty - Have fun out there, work together, and represent yourselves with that love of sport inside of you. Humility - Win or lose, do it with dignity and class.”
