RCDS Coaches and Student-Athletes Examine the Broad Value of their Athletic Pursuits

Teamwork! Confidence! Empathy! RCDS coaches and student-athletes attended presentations by Dr. Greg Dale, Duke University's Director of Sport Psychology and Leadership Programs, to help them examine and understand the broad value of their athletic pursuits. Coaches gathered for a generative session on coaching styles that distilled the benefits of coaching that extend beyond the field and court including empathy, motivation, and confidence. Students discussed making healthy choices and handling pressure along with collaboration, balance, self-awareness, and how their approach to their sports can enhance learning and support personal fulfillment. Many thanks to Dr. Dale for these informative and energetic presentations.
