5 Ways to be a good Teammate

1.) Work Ethic: Success always follows those who work hard at their craft. There are never any shortcuts, both on and off the ice.

2.) Respect: For your teammates, coaches, opponents, the officials and even the game itself. Despite winning or losing, your character is what will be remembered. Make sure it’s a good one.

3.) Enthusiasm: Take pride in what you do and always come with a high level of energy. Not only will it benefit your performance but will encourage others to do the same.

4.) Discipline: If you play sports, you will face adversity. There is no way around it. At some point, the game will not be going your way or your team’s way. How will you react in those stressful situations? The best teammates learn to control their emotions, figure out the solution and attack the problem as a team.

5.) Selflessness: Always be willing to help others, and remember, “We always supersedes me.”
