Gratitude. Respect. Integrity. Teamwork.
These are the values we hold dear in our sport. Do you?
What are you grateful for today? Who are you grateful for?
Who do you respect and do they positively influence your life? Do you have self-respect? Do you respect your body and its needs?
How do you show integrity in your life? Do you speak well of others or not at all? Are you honest? Are you kind?
How do you show up for your teammates, friends, family, classmates, and beyond? Do you get along well? Do you set a positive example?
GRIT is a work in progress and evolves as we do. Have you got GRIT? Here are some examples:
