Raising a Team Player: Teaching Kids Lasting Values on the Field, on the Court, and on the Bench : In an age when anger, selfishness, and win-at-all-costs attitudes pervade what was formerly known as fun and games, Raising a Team Player offers hope, perspective, and life-tested wisdom. Fierce yet even-tempered; hard-working yet fun-loving; competitive yet sportsmanlike; proud yet humble -- if these are the qualities we wish to see in our children, Harry Sheehy argues, then now is the time to get started. Drawing from a passion that fueled twenty years of coaching youngsters in grade school through college, Sheehy shows parents how to turn the high-pressure situations inherent to sports into true teaching moments that endow kids with resilient life skills -- skills that will serve them for years to come.
