GAMEDAY: SEASON 3 – SEMESTER 2 – FAMILY

Gameday Master Workbooks Coming Soon

Reliability: Soccer

We teach students their ABCs and counting before teaching them to read and do math. This is the obvious way to do things because without knowledge of the letters and numbers, they don’t have the basic components required to learn how to write or add. The same is true in sports like soccer.
Becoming a FIFA World Cup champion starts with learning the building blocks of soccer, like dribbling, passing, and receiving, because these are the foundation of the game. The best of the best are masters of the basics; they become reliable and trustworthy with the little things over time. Everyone starts with learning the little things.

Boldness: Tennis

Boldness, courage, and bravery are traits that all boil down to the same concept: being willing to go first. We often think of first responders like emergency medical techs, firefighters, and police. Or we think of the men and women serving in the military. But society’s need for bold people to do dangerous and important roles isn’t the only reason that going first matters.
When someone is bold enough to go first, that invites the others around them to join in, too. This can be on a grand scale, like Arthur Ashe helping to pave the way for black athletes to play professional tennis. Or it can be on a smaller scale, like when a student stands up for a peer against a bully. No matter the scale, boldness matters.

Composure: Scuba

SCUBA divers have to know how to use their gear, remember to breathe consistently, and stay in communication with their dive partners. All of this requires composure, so divers learn to stay calm under pressure while becoming certified.
Sometimes our students have big emotions that they don’t know how to channel in appropriate ways. This distresses the student and distracts the rest of the class. Like SCUBA divers, our students can learn to use the tools available to them to stay calm when they want to freak out.

Loyalty: Mascots

People get really passionate about things that they like and identify with, and that passion inspires loyalty. Whether we’re talking about candy, sports, or cities, people are loyal to their team. And no one exemplifies loyalty better than team mascots. These costume-wearing entertainers are fantastic athletes in their own right, but they use their talents and energy to encourage others to support their team. Win or lose, rain or shine, mascots are there to support their team, no matter what.

Diligence: Fishing

Any type of fishing takes patience, but fly-fishing in particular requires diligence. Anglers have to move carefully so they don’t spook the flighty trout. Anglers also have to keep trying multiple types of fly patterns to attract these picky-eater fish. Care and persistence are two skills that will help our students overcome obstacles as they learn and grow. When these skills are combined, we call that diligence.
