Featured message this week:


You don’t grow in the good times, you grow in the bad times.  Adversity brings out the best in individuals.  We become stronger, better and more alert when we are challenged.  We need to fail, we need to be knocked off of our feet once in while, in order to know how to stand strong.  In the bad times learn to fight. In the good times learn to be appreciative; and always be humble and willing to learn what you don’t already know.

 Some News About The Week:

 Evaluations are scheduled for this week.  Don’t forget to come to class for your evaluation this week.  MGA will be scheduling 2nd evaluations for students that have been flagged to move up.  When you want to know how your child is doing, just go to your parent portal and check your notifications for your uploaded evaluation card.  We are happy to give you child and you the feedback that you need.

Ninja on the Go!  Coach Josh will be bringing our Ninja program to Star Child beginning this week.  So if your

 Motivation of Athletes
Ralph Waldo Emerson

1. Motivation Through Fear

First, instilling fear in others is simple (and it can quickly motivate some people) but over time, fear can easily breed resentment and disloyalty. The athlete who is motivated by fear is likely not so much trying to achieve something as they are trying to avoid something (e.g., losing a position or making a mistake). This athlete generally becomes focused on what not to do, rather than what to do. In time, this can become stressful and lead to a strong sense of resentment and/or disloyalty toward the one instilling the fear.

2. Motivation Through Incentives

     Incentives too can be effective for the short-term. Dangling the “carrot” (e.g., playing time, money, trophies, etc.) is a strong motivator for many athletes but these extrinsic means generally last for only a short time before the “incentives” need increased or made more appealing. The less appealing the incentive, the less motivation one will generally show.

3. Motivation Through Purpose

Finally, developing a strong sense of purpose is most effective for promoting long-term motivation. Creating a sense of purpose and/or meaning is about changing the way athletes think about their roles, their reasons for coming to practice, their influence on teammates, their membership on the team, and their reasons for playing and competing. Providing purpose and meaning is about creating an environment that is conducive to personal growth and encouraging athletes to motivate themselves, as well as inspire their teammates. Developing purpose and meaning takes more time and energy (investment) but it can lead to that long-term motivation for which most coaches are striving.
