Character Counts for Athletes

Written by Rod Handley, Elliot Johnson & Gordon Thiessen

We have a major problem in our society - a lack of character. Does character count? We say a resounding "Yes" - it does matter! We propose that character does count and society is placing a higher premium on character. The purpose of this book is to identify qualities that will make a winning difference in your life. Make it your plan to examine at least one character quality each week. Read the short sports story, then do the Pre-game Talk, Warm-up, Character Training, Go the Distance, The Finish Line and the final chapter exercises. The book is designed to interact with others in a small group setting. If you are leading a group, create an environment where you can freely exchange thoughts and ideas.
