Check out the latest SIRC Newsletter on Team Cohesion!
Team cohesion is critical, as it can often impact performance. However, this can be difficult as all athletes have different personalities, goals, achievements and athletic ability. It is important to participate in team building exercises and to come up with expectations together not only for the team but also for players as individuals; this can include goals, commitment and procedures for dealing with problems within the team. Team building is not just something that should be done at the beginning of the season or when new players join, it must be worked on all season in order to have athletes work together as a cohesive team.
