Are you leading young athletes?
Are you an inspiration to the next generation of Olympians and Paralympians?
Whatever your role in the sport community, whether it be a middle school soccer coach or a three-time Paralympian, you have the ability to shape a culture of sport where perseverance, sportsmanship, and respect are valued just as much as wins and stats. Instilling these values means setting expectations for yourself and others, as well as modeling and reinforcing positive behaviors.
Show YOUR values to help develop a generation of leaders who know how to win the right way, from basketball courts to board rooms.
