Team Building is a great aspect of Sports which is undervalued. It allows kids to develop trust with one another but more importantly it allows all players to create a connection with all of their teammates and not just their best friends. Having done team building as a Cross Country coach for Cross Country, I completely undertand its impact and know of its benefits. I will sprinkle in different things during the course of the season to help players develop a bond with each other outside of basketball. They will spend a lot of time in a competitive environment so it is important for them to get to know each other outside of basketball. I am a firm believer they will play harder for each other if they get to know their teammates better.
Please be on the look out for more information regarding this at the Parent Meeting. Once the team has been finalized, I will reach out to everyone in hopes of sharing my ideas.
