Leadership Council/Captain Application

Like most coaches across the country we are trying to improve our team by building better young men.  Part of this is by building better leaders.

A year ago we began by building a leadership council. We selected a team of 10 returning varsity players to act as leaders, and come up with our team rules and discipline. It started off great but in the rush to get ready for the season at some point in the Summer we lost focus.

We are building our leadership council for next season and I had the idea that our kids should APPLY for a position on the council… and the privilege of being named a captain in the future.

I found some examples online and took from them what I liked and built the following document which i passed out to players this week.

I received a number of messages on twitter and emails asking to see our application so I decided to share it here.
