Throughout my years of coaching whether it be on the wrestling mat or weight room, I have come to realize that the culture a coach creates is a big factor that allows an athlete to be successful. It is my duty to ensure that the culture I create for the team allows every athlete to thrive and become the best version of themselves.
I can never define what my team culture is because it’s not a definable word, it’s a feeling. The feeling of a great team culture to me is: feeling comfortable to try new things without fear of failure, feeling like the athlete belongs amongst their teammates, feeling free to express themselves without judgement, and feeling respected so they can give respect back.
Wrestling is an unbelievably difficult sport and hard work ethic is a necessity. However, when athletes feel they are a part of a great team culture, the hard work does not feel so hard anymore.
