Sounds like a broken record with me.

Believe in yourself
Believe in your team
Brave folk are nothing more than us guys who didn't give into fear!!
CONFIDENCE in all that you attempt. 
Fear of Failure keeps most of us from trying in the first place.

Failure is only failure if you FAIL to learn.

I have mentioned all of these, and more, to my kids.  My last statement to them was "I dont care whose leg you're chewing on as long as you're chewing on one.  We'll figure it our later!!

In other words INDEED!!

We had Navy Seal Night last season. It was the single best team building exercise I have ever seen. 8 former Navy Seals volunteered their time came in & worked our boys for 12 hours. 6 pm to 6 am they put them rigorous training Navy Seal style. The first 30 second was all it took to garner full attention of everyone. It was done with no yelling or screaming, & extremely effective. Positive attitude & confidence were built very fast.

Joe I would invite those who have failed to make "Seal Team"  they truly know how hard it is.  There is no shame at all for "Ringing the Bell". 

I dont know who said it but "It is far better to have tried and failed than to never have tried at all."

One thing they said amazed me, they said everyone who goes through actual Seal training whether they pass or "Ring Out" have the feeling at one point that the only option is to "Ring the bell". Just to be chosen to try they have to be very special.

I am still raving about the night & it was back in July. I have seen many different techniques to build a team, nothing can compare with what they did. They start with "swim buddy's" a team of 2, then a "Boats" a team of 8, & finally the "Squad" entire team. The concept was not about the individual, but the team, your boat & your swim buddy. Very rapidly they become more concerned with the whole instead of the individual.

The other thing is they build confidence because they know how to get men to exceed what they believe are there limitations. Our players went way beyond their perceived limits. When they finished there was a glow in their eyes & they were totally spent. It took us almost a week to get our legs back, but whenever things got difficult they recalled that night. They were mentally tough & won 6 of our 11 wins in the fourth quarter.

I can't  speak highly enough about those men. They gave freely of their time & not only were an inspiration to the players but the coaches as well. Our first playoff game we made a big deal & invited them, 7 of the 8 showed up. We surprised the players & the commander gave the pregame speech. It was a great night.

Those men are amazing.

I had a chance to serve and do some training with a few of them when I was deployed on the 15th MEU SOC with the Maritime Special Operations Team.  I learned a great deal from them...  Probably the finest group of war fighters we have...

I can say this it has an impact at any age...my seven year old has ADHD...biggest problem was is confidence and how frustrated he would get when he started to struggle or fall behind his peers.  I started working with him on his attitude and just the ability to not give up to the temptation of saying "I can't"...  Since we started working on that and doing a few other things he is a much different kid...a lot more confident in himself and much more willing to interact with his peers and push himself...so it works for all ages :)

Thanks for posting coach Gregory.


Can a moderator copy this thread to the team building.


I believe this would be a great starting point for a new coach.


Joe thanks for sharing your story. Truly inspirational.

One of best documentaries ever on what it takes to make the elite team.

If you are going to be a hard ass, know why you are being a hardass and have a purpose to it other than just being an a-hole whose turn it is to be in charge.

If you notice there is a thought out purpose to everything they do.
