HEADING INTO SPRING CAMPS - SHOW CONFIDENCE AND MATURITY TO COACHES : "A person's tendency is to judge someone by face value instead of investing further time and effort getting to know with certainty who they really are." This statement made by Brad Brewer provides insight into the importance of making a connection with coaches. Lets start by looking at meeting the coach. Always start with a firm handshake. Often this connection will help with emotional engagement during an introduction. From here make sure you look each person that you are speaking with in the eye and portray interest in the conversation. Athletes that show confidence without having to say anything are the ones that leaders notice!
