  • Creating a positive learning environment 
    1. Have a positive mindset and be enthusiastic
      • Athletes on the team will mimic coaches who bring their positivity allowing it to radiate so that everyone stays positive. 
    2. Use inclusive language and make everyone feel valued
      • When talking to the team use the term “We” to emphasize collectiveness. 
      • Check in with each player each day to see how they are doing
    3. End each practice with a positive activity and give athletes choice
      • Athletes should be allowed to pick this activity each day. 
    4. Set goals for each practice
      • This allows everyone to be on the same page and know what they are working toward.
