Losing is part of the competition. If you play any sport long enough, then you will eventually experience the adversity of being defeated. Whether it be an occasional game or going through an entire season and losing more (sometimes many more!) games than you win.
Failure, at some point, is inevitable and unavoidable.
Certainly, no one sets out to lose a game. Coaches, players, and parents should begin to view their team’s struggles in a different light. Losing, however, is a necessary ingredient to ultimate success.
