Team leaders are not just those designated as team captain. All players can provide leadership by what they say and what they do. These players not only want to see their own play improve but that of their teammates as well. Leadership is shown in different ways including:

  • Reaching out and making friends on the team
  • Complimenting other players when they play well
  • Encouraging other players when they make mistakes
  • Encouraging teammates even when the team is behind on the scoreboard
  • Demonstrating hard work
  • Never throwing a fit when things don’t go right
  • Listening to coaches
  • Helping other players on the team to play better

Coaches need players to help provide leadership to the team and set a positive example for other players.
