Over time, this page will be populated with deep thoughts and musings by Coach MB and the wonderful staff at Rippers!
What's been on my mind lately as we launch into another spring season of lacrosse is this: PROMISE. The start of the season holds so much promise. Your story, your team's story has yet to be written and you get to help write that story. Your hard work in the off-season, slogging through practices in the rain, and sprints in the dark may seem punishing and, at times, futile. But, collectively, your hard work and your teammates' holds so much promise for the season. It offers insurance that the season will be a success because you know that you've put in the time and because you care!
One thing that I always stress to my players is, and stop me if you've heard this before, "to be a good teammate." A good teammate puts the team first. A good teammate shows up early for extra reps. A good teammate stays late to help pick up equipment. A good teammate picks up their teammates. There are countless examples, so I'll let Positive Coaching Alliance tell it best in this article that I look to at the start of every season.
If you can be a good teammate, I promise that your season will be a successful one.
