Do you struggle to help your female athletes play confidently because they’ve been raised to step back?
Check out today’s Soccer Wire to read my article about the “leadership council” initiated by Head Women’s Soccer Coach Diane Drake. She has created and defined an environment where the cooperation natural to women plays host to internal accountability. This makes the team stronger and allows them to compete fully, not just as teammates but as friends.
That’s the best of the women’s game. Having teammates who will be honest and push each other to be better. For the good of the team. And the good of the game.
