Go For The Gold Pep Talk
Setting the Table for Go For The Gold
A team coming together is built upon the relationships within your team growing. In order for them to grow, players need to build connections with one another. Unfortunately, building deep connections with one another isn’t a strong skillset many athletes possess. Conversation with the goal of connecting is a lost art and our relationships are the ones suffering. If we can’t build connections; how are we going to grow closer?
The Going for the Gold exercise will teach your players how to have deeper, meaningful conversations, leading to greater connections.
