I believe each athlete plays an important role in the success of a team. Each player has responsibilities whether they are on or off the court, at practice or during a game. I believe not every win is a win, and not every loss is a loss, and whether we do something well or we struggle there is always an opportunity to learn something about ourselves and the sport. I believe practices are opportunities to work on fundamentals, develop new skills, and build trust with teammates. The TEAM must work together to grow together, and practice time is the gift in which each athlete has the opportunity to become a better, well-rounded athlete. Coaches and athletes must strive to do our best so we may become the best.
