Building an Uncommon Champion: Help Your Child Redefine Success (Paperback)
Building an Uncommon Champion helps parents guide their athletic children to learning lifelong principles to be confident, mentally tough, and capable of developing deeper, more meaningful relationships.
Parents whose children desire to achieve the highest level in their sport, particularly hockey, find tools to aid their children in not just growing as athletes, but as people. Young athletes may have hopes of being on a college, NHL or Olympic team one day, but not many make it that far. Utilizing philosophies employed by Navy SEALS to build strong leaders and teams alongside anecdotes from years of experience in training and raising athletes, Jennifer Matras lays the groundwork for athletes to develop into better friends, teammates, and students. More than a book that focuses on the how-to's of building speed or strength, Building an Uncommon Champion shares details of Competitive Edge Skating, Inc.'s program, which is designed to give children an uncommon advantage with proven techniques to enhance and sustain their abilities in the arena, weight room, and classroom along with building world class leadership skills. Parents learn to help their children tap into their God-given tools to be the best they can be, leaving common for someone else.
