Coaches must continually strive to accept all of their student/athletes unconditionally. Here we will examine the question of how we accept our students/ athletes. Is it for how well they perform, their size, how coachable they are, how they do in academics, their sexual orientation or whatever other yardstick we may use? Coaches will be asked to contrast and compare performance versus effort. The class will help coaches develop a philosophy of how to accept each young person for who they are not what they can do.
