Principles of Sports Leadership: Leadership is a critical element to success in any field, and sports is no different. We will discuss in class the basic elements of good leadership that are exhibited by Coaches and General Managers of sports teams. We will also discuss how to develop leaders.
Developing Teamwork: In sports, it is critical for all members of the team to understand their role on the team and the importance of their ability to work together towards a common goal of winning the game. In the class, we will show how a sports team achieves this and how this can be applied in the business world.
Student Activity – It’s important to be a well-rounded athlete and in this CTF, students will also be exposed to and participate in a variety of different physical activities and sports. Sports may include curling, archery, biking, basketball, floor hockey, indoor soccer, etc.
