As we move into the Winter Sports Season, I think it is important to re-inforce the concept of creating positive and inclusive programs. We had a saying when coaching basketball, team chemistry trumps talent. Creating positive team chemistry is a fundamental when building a program. The following links from our partners at the Positive Coaching Alliance are great reminders- https://www.positivecoach.org/the-power-of-positive/ https://d3kv8ayplk3lle.cloudfront.net/sites/uploads/files/PCA_EYG3.4_0.pdf https://devzone.positivecoach.org/resource/video/focus-attitude-and-effort-even-when-game-isnt-going-your-way
