Adversity is something we're teaching our athletes to deal with every day on the field. The goal is to prepare them for when unexpected adversity strikes outside of athletics. We are all dealing with an adverse season right now. We can either rail against it, or put into practice what we've been trying to teach our athletes all this time: Adversity is just an opportunity for growth. In this episode, Mackey encourages us to use this time of adversity to become better, to invest in ourselves, and to connect with our athletes and other coaches (from a distance).
-Show athletes that you care about them as people.
-Use this time to grow in your leadership.
-Don't forget to take care of yourself.
If you'd like Mackey to virtually encourage your athletes, please email Alyssa at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a date and time that works best for your team! COWI!
