We're big on the 4R's at Everyball. Respect, Responsibility, Reflection and Resilience....our core values within the programme as well as life skills that we can develop through the demands of our sport.
It all begins with respect for oneself, the game, the opponent, and our differences. Respect is the cornerstone that holds everything else up, a fundamental 'life' principle if you like. Pretty apt for Easter Sunday as in biblical times, a cornerstone was used as the foundation and standard upon which a building was constructed and often as a reference to Jesus himself.
To help us develop some strong fundamental 'game' principles, a while back we developed the acronym R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
I begin to unpack this today in this video:
