8 Points to becoming a CHAMPION

    Hard work




    Intense desire

    One for all and all for one

    Never Give Up

Confidence - You have to believe in yourself before you can achieve your goals.

Hard work - Even the most talented athletes would not get anywhere without lots and lots of hard work and practice.

Attitude - Don't be a sore loser and don't cheer when something bad happens to the other team. Treat them with respect and they will do the same for you.

Motivation - Whether you have a sports hero - like Michael Jordan or Mia Hamm - or whether you just love to play the game, keeping your inspiration in mind will help you achieve your goals.

Preparation - Be prepared to face the challenges of the day, whether on the field or in the classroom. Practice makes perfect!

Intense desire - If you want to win so badly you can taste it, it will give you an edge.

One for all and all for one - Stay loyal to your team and always put team goals before your own; remember, there is no "I" in "TEAM"!

Never Give Up - Never Give Up means that you keep trying until you achieve your goal. No one ever got it right on the first try!

Someone was gracious enough to send this acronym via email while I was playing cash bingo games.. It would be nice to give the original author credit for this.

"My son's high school coach gave him a copy of the book and he read it in two days. Now he is leading the effort to get himself a scholarship. The book is inspiring and effective for high school athletes."
