So here I am in Gainesville, Florida getting ready to speak at the prestigious, Billy Donovan Coaching Clinic at the University of Florida. 50 of the top college basketball and NBA coaches have been invited to this two day event filled with information and networking for the upcoming season. I will be speaking tomorrow night after Steve Clifford of the Orlando Magic and Bob Bender of the Atlanta Hawks. The topic? Building toughness in your team and individuals.
How do you do it? Well, for starters, everyone needs to play as a team. Babe Ruth said, “The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”
TEAM—Together Everyone Achieves More…as long as..there’s a Total Effort from All Members.
It’s good to be the best ON the team; it’s better to be the best FOR the team.
Stay tuned for more from the Sunshine State.
