Life Lessons: Re-Defining the Term Athlete   (Athletes, Coaches, Parents)   Have standards, not rules.  The clearer behavioral standards are defined, the better chance athletes will rise to them.  In order for individual athletes and teams to reach their potential, they must have clearly identified expectations for team behaviors.  This presentation clearly defines some of the following characteristics in athletic, age-appropriate terms: Discipline, Teachable Spirit, Mental Toughness, Accountability, Selflessness, Integrity, Pride/Humility.  BookletsLife Lessons for Athletes; Compete: Traits of an Elite Competitor

Be an active participant in your own rescue. Release yourself to be your best self. Booklets – Playing with Confidence & Compete: Traits of an Elite Competitor

The Impact of Trust   (Coaches & Teachers)              When athletes trust their coaches and when teams trust each other, it has a tremendous impact on performance.  What allows someone to be trusted?  How can coaches improve the level of individual and team trust?  What causes coaches to be distrusted and how does that impact performance?  When trust is present, teams have a much better chance of reaching potential.  Booklet – The Impact of Trust

Team-Building Through Positive Conditioning  (Coaches) This is a completely different philosophical and application method for conditioning.  It is a powerful way to build teams and turn potentially negative aspects of practice into positives.  Stop using conditioning as punishment or using fear-based motivation and get your team into better condition than you thought possible.  Booklet Team Building Through Positive Conditioning

Testimonials

Coach Rosberg’s message is exactly what my coaches, student athletes, parents, and I needed to hear. He challenged us to keep the important elements – fun, character development, influence – at the forefront of our focus on sports. The content was immediately relevant and applicable to all of us, and I anticipate a positive change to our culture this school year. Tim Wormald – Assistant Principal/Activities Director – Powell High School – Powell, WY 

Our coaches and kids couldn’t be happier with how the presentation went.  Scott was incredibly organized and the whole day flowed easily.  All coaches and kids were engaged and attentive the entire 4 hours!  We are already planning on possibly booking him every June now so he can speak with our teams before the Summer starts.  You guys have a great organization, and the work you do is a great help to athletic administrators, coaches and student/athletes. Bob Lim – Athletic Director – Chicago (Marist) High School

Scott did an outstanding job!  His presentation was exactly what we needed in Timber Lake.  Thanks for working with us! Julie Marshall – MS/HS Principal – Timber Lake School – Timber Lake, SD
