Developing Youth Leaders in Team Sports
Young athletes need to be taught how to be a leader. Coaches can’t appoint a captain and expect them to innately know what to do in that role. What is a leader like? How can they become a leader? What do you do with a child who is not acting like a leader? Who should you choose to be the captain of your team? How do you create a team of leaders?
Brad Jubin, coach and founder of Always Play IV Each Other (APIVEO), speaks passionately about leadership in youth. He defines leadership as using our talents and lessons to benefit those around us. Leaders seek opportunities to add value around them. They play for the team. Learn more through Brad’s podcast and his short and engaging sports leadership lessons for kids.
