Using a holistic approach to sports training, coaches aim to build confidence through positive reinforcement while adding mental preparedness for situations their clients may encounter. They also impart life lessons such as goal setting, responsibility, discipline, dedication, the significance of being a team player, positive attitude, character, sportsmanship, and respect.
