Coaches, you need to help in this process too and really work on compassionately helping your athlete see the forest for the trees.
All shapes. All sizes. All ages. ALL ABILITIES. Celebrate.
Encourage and introduce to as many opportunities, moments and experiences as possible so they too can one day be highlighted on a CBC Montage with a famous Pop Singer, singing what has now become the 2019 Female Anthem of Canadian Girls, or at least, it should be. 😉
Think about that kid that can play any position… yeah, be that kid.
