Between the Sheets : The Silver Lining

You may possess the book already, so comes with it some great reading. If you don’t have it yet, you may want to get your copy here but as you wait for it, here’s one of many great quotes you can find in it.

From the chapter “a delicate mix : developing team chemistry”.

Team chemistry deepens when players feel they are growing as human being because of their involvement with the team. Curling is a game and meant to be fun. However, high-performance curling is a game with more at stake because of the emotional investment made by each player. When someone makes an emotion investment or commitment to a competitive curling team, the intuitive hope is that other benefits will kick in. If a person sees growth in other areas if his life because of his involvement with a team, the loyalty towards each teammate will grow. Trust grows deeper, accountability is more natural and the willingness to encourage is more intentional.
