Be Careful What You Recognize

 
Be careful what things you recognize like personal statistics. They send the message that sports are about individuals and accomplishment only. They usually recognize the same and best players. Athletes end up playing for personal marks, instead of team goals.
 
Posting team statistics are OK as they emphasize the whole and show team trends.
 
Also, never fail to recognize players for best attitude, most coachable, best hustle, best teammate, and most improved. Those things motivate players from day to day and are the essential attributes you want kids to learn from team sports.
 
Be the Best
