Olympian and TrueSport Ambassador Elizabeth Beisel explains what being an accountable TrueSport athlete means for you, your teammates, and your coaches.
When you’re on a team, you expect your teammates to work hard and give a hundred percent, and they expect the same from you. This means that you are all holding each other accountable. It also is important to take responsibility for your choices and actions. When you’re a part of a team, you should always treat your teammates and coaches with respect. If you decide to skip practice or give less than a hundred percent, you aren’t giving your teammates and coaches the respect they deserve. So the next time you think about skipping practice, remember that you are a TrueSport athlete, which means that you are reliable, responsible, and respectful.
