As a teacher, you have special powers – the power to open your students’ eyes to new ways of looking at life; the power to influence their future career choices; the power to guide their conduct both in and outside of the classroom.
You listen, coach, and mentor. You simplify the complex. You help make the mundane extraordinary. You play a vital role in the development of your young students – not only do you teach 123 and ABC, but also the skills needed to be successful later in life.
Help maximize your student’s potential both on and off the field with these TrueSport Educator resources.
“My True Sport moment came years ago when I first became a coach. I realized quickly that the volleyball program that I was trying to build would never become successful unless our players improved their character with better decisions in their lives. I thought that character and dignity was being taught at home. Perhaps it was but I soon realized that I needed to expect them to be good people first and good athletes second. You can be a good person without being a good athlete, but rarely can you be a good athlete without being a good person. So I adopted in my mind and in my heart that I needed to “LOVE them enough to hold them ACCOUNTABLE.” After two long and painful years, I began to notice a culture change in our program. We saw glimpses of going in a positive direction. What I would have given to have had True Sport in my life at that time! Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
