The Making of a Champion
Part 5

Adversity-
"Adversity introduces a player to herself"
"One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks"

It has been said that the road to success is always under construction.There will always be obstacles on your path to success..injuries,playing time,officials,coaches,teammates etc. Quite simply ,life is not fair. Often you can do exactly as you intended and not get the result you want.A kick in football is returned for a TD and then there is a penalty , a perfect corner hit and no one is at the post ,the grass is too high , the officials , the other coach etc,etc,etc.
NO season is going to be without adversity.
It just doesn't happen.How each player and the team reacts to the inevitable challenges will determine how well they do.Seasons are like roller-coasters.There are always ups and downs.
Be the one who shows the way when things get tough.Be the one who wants the ball when others don't.When you make a mistake bounce back and keep playing hard,don't hide the rest of the game.Get ready for the next play and hope it comes your way.
Your greatest accomplishment is to rise everytime you fall....to get up when you've been knocked down.....to bounce back when the going gets tough.

We believe in everyone of you. If you are going to do this you have to believe in yourselves.
"A Champion gets up even when they can't"
