"Character Education is not another thing on your plate
IT IS THE PLATE"
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character that is the goal of True Education. MLKing Jr.-Nobel Prize Winner
Character is a life long endeavor and requires a developmental approach. Three spheres are needed, cognitive, emotional, behavioral for character development. Knowing the good, desiring the good and doing the good. By first seeking to understand character development, coaches are better equipped to help student/athletes develop good character. The percentages state that the athletic field or court is the best place to start while in the school environment ! Our clinic goal is to jump start the educational process for the coaches and to give them the tools needed to be successful. Coaches are the place to start because they have the ultimate carrot, "Playing Time". With this carrot the student/athlete will be motivated to learn more about Character and how it can play a role in making the right choices. At the end of the day we are the sum of our choices please give these young adults a fighting chance to make better ones !!!
