Character Creates Teams
that Win–On and Off the Field

A CHARACTER WORKOUT

Athletic training and competition provides players and coaches with rich opportunities to develop character. By developing one’s fitness and sportsmanship, sports are powerful training camps that instill a personal and communal focus on character.

DEVELOPING GOOD CHARACTER STARTS IN PRACTICE

Players and coaches develop when they are presented with challenges on both the practice field and the playing field.

SPORTS AND THE COMMUNITY

Athletes are role models and leaders in their communities. Creating and supporting character-focused teams has a positive impact far beyond the field.
