As we continue with our blog series on F.O.C.U.S., we will now discuss Unity, which is the U in our acronym. As I’ve mentioned in past blog posts, on a personal level, the most lasting lessons that basketball and team sports taught me were the skills of working well with others.
I don’t remember a lot of scores, plays or highlights from my playing career, but the things that have lasted the test of time are the friendships I made along the way and the lessons I learned about working towards something bigger than myself.
Sometimes they were difficult lessons to learn. Sometimes they were downright painful. But below you will find 3 lessons on Unity that can be taught through basketball and other team sports.
