The T.E.A.M. Approach
Life of an Athlete promotes the T. E. A. M. approach to successful team culture.
If you are more experienced, teach not only the fundamentals, but good character and the importance to a positive lifestyle on and off the field to your team mates. This includes good nutrition, proper sleep and staying alcohol and drug free.
Enforce good behaviors. If you hear of a potential party with alcohol and drugs, let your coach know. If a teammate violates the Code, let your coach know. This sets the standard for enforcement and helps the athlete become a better athlete, student, and citizen.
It’s important to advocate for proper training, nutrition, sleep and a chemical-free lifestyle.
Remember that others are watching, so be a good role model for your team mates.
