The overall theme of my talk is how we as educators and coaches need to focus on being mentors first and foremost before focusing on the scoreboard. However, with the proper focus on building champions first, coaches can create success both on and off the playing field for their student-athletes. This is why my key phrase to coaching my athlete is this "We are not champions because we win, we win because we are Champions".   In addition to explaining how my philosophy has created great success in my coaching experience I will also explain the need for fun and team building exercises to help grow your team and create enthusiasm, which is a key ingredient for success in all walks of life.   The concrete takeaways for my participants would be to help them have a road map to success but to also help the participants set goals for themselves, their team, and their student-athletes.
