Thanks to performance coach and author Alan Stein Jr. for sharing this video and reminding us that player-led teams always outperform coach-led teams.  This is true at the pro level but should be a goal for youth sports teams too.  There is no doubt that as the kids get older, they should be taking control of their own team, their own development and their own success.  In learning circles, we talk about “empowering” kids to become “self-aware” as an athlete and as a person.  This type of player doesn’t need a coach shouting instructions from the sideline.  This kind of player doesn’t need a parent telling them to practice more.  This kind of player rises high and lifts the team with them.

Hoping this video inspires you to nurture player-led teams and self-aware athletes. Have a great sports week.
