Here are some of the Life Skill we teach our students

We define focus for our students as the ability to pay attention and listen attentively to coaches, parents, and teachers
We’ll spend the first week explaining to them what Focus is and why it’s important. I Sit my Students down and tell them how greater focus in life will help them learn easier and be better at anything they try.
The Second and Third Week we’ll spend coming up with examples together. We choose examples not only for when they train but also when there at home or in school.

This will also help increase their confidence if they can come up with really good examples for the coach.
