Sporting CT MENTAL HEALTH Mental health is crucial in our players lives as we want their well-being to be at their ultimate best. Our Approach SAFE ENVIRONMENT COLLABORATIVE SOLUTION BASED REALITY BASED SAFE ENVIRONMENT Mental health and physical health of the players is top priority; without this, will not thrive as a group or individuals. COLLABORATIVE It is not coaches vs players/parents - as we are all one group, one team - we are all working for the best interest of the team. SOLUTION BASED On Field: style of play that solves problems within the game with tools learned from within practice. Off Field: we are here to prepare players for the road ahead, not prepare the road for them. REALITY BASED On Field: training will reflect the game and the level/style we are working toward. Off Field: we will be supportive and give critical feedback when needed. Agreeing on realistic goals helps the group/individual do lots of good work.
