TEN QUALITIES OF A TEAM PLAYERS -National Collegiate Athletic Association
1. Ability to organize time well- Student-athletes must balance a full-time academic-athletic workload, travel to other schools for games and other campus activities. 2. Ability to work well with others- It is sometimes necessary to submerge one's ego and personal goals into the goals of the organization, leadership and team. 3. Goal Directed- Student-athletes develop the ability to concentrate their energies and attention over an extended period of time to block out distractions while they proceed toward their goals. 4. Competitiveness- Competitive spirit is the lifeblood of the athletics experience. Student-athletes gain experience in the rigors of winning and losing, looking forward to fight more battles, test their abilities, and risk their self-esteem against tough opposition. This is a strong asset in most jobs. 5. Confidence- Student-athletes are continually in situations where they must pump up and believe in their own power to produce effectively under pressure. The ability to approach tough performance situations with the belief that you'll do well is crucial. Maintaining self-confidence, especially under tense circumstances, can carry over to on-the-job challenges. 6. Persistence and endurance- Long hard work and maximum effort, performing under adverse circumstances toward distant rewards with belief. 7. Loyalty- Loyalty emerges from the bond that an individual student-athlete builds with his or her team and is expressed in the willingness to support team efforts under any circumstances. Loyalty that contributes to the morale of a team or work group, because it enables each team member to trust that others will work toward the same ends. 8. Discipline- Organizing one's time, adhering to guidelines, giving maximum effort on a regular basis, concentrating one's energies and screening out competing priorities are all necessary in athletics. The systematic application of one's energies toward a desired goal is highly valued in any work setting. 9. Ability to take criticism- Because their performance on the field is watched closely, student-athletes are accustomed to taking criticism. Coaches recommend changes and develop student-athletes to cope with the feeling that they could have done better. Student-athletes typically develop into good listeners when constructive criticism is offered because they recognize its value in helping them advance toward overall goals. 10. Resilience- sports offers continued opportunities to test yourself, succeed or fail, and then come back for more. No one who competes in a sport can avoid the experience of failure. Student-athletes learn to face failure and bury any negative feelings because tomorrow's contest demands their full attention. Among the most valuable lessons of athletics are how to win, how to lose and how to rebound from both.
