Fundamentals - Encourage Leadership from Everyone
Nov 18, 2015  8:22 AM
You don't need to be a Captain to be a Leader

Leadership. When we think about the life lessons that our kids can learn from youth sports, we oftentimes cite "leadership." Many kids - and adults- think that being a leader means being captain. But in fact some of the best leaders in sports have not worn the C on their uniform instead leading in the locker room, at practice, and in critical game moments. Rather than one star player leading the MLS New York City Red Bulls this season, a "leadership council" exists with captain Dax McCarty, goalkeeper Luis Robles and midfielder Lloyd Sam joined by six other veterans to take on leadership roles. "All of us see ourselves on the same level in terms of our leadership and our abilities and our roles," said McCarty. So far, the leadership council has taken the Red Bulls to the top of the Eastern Conference standings. Read More >>

Play Positive Fundamentals - Respecting Officials
Jun 18, 2015  9:59 AM
As Draymond Green of the NBA's Golden State Warriors yelled "And One!" and his layup scored, his teammate, Shaun Livingston, patted his head, mimicking the foul he felt was committed against Green. Livingston was immediately assessed a technical foul: arguing calls. MLB Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price approached the umpire to present the lineup card for the night and found himself ejected before the first pitch had even been called: Price was arguing balls and strikes from the game the night before. Whether it's players or coaches, professional leagues have instituted rules to set boundaries around behavior directed at umpires, officials and referees. Read More >>
