Building Confidence – Dot Richardson

Dr. Dot RichardsonObjective: An exercise in building team unity

Explanation: After practice have your team stand in a group and pull out one player. Have that player stand in front of the rest of the team. At this point have each athlete compliment their teammate on acts of service they witnessed or any other wonderful things she is and/or has done. The athlete is not allowed to speak during the entire exercise. They must stand there and take the compliments. Compliment one player after each practice. You will see an amazing transformation in your team and the way they deal with each other.
