Athlete Development Model

Play Like A Champion offers an approach to develop Champions: athletes with excellent physical skills and character. GROW is based on “Self Determination Theory” which is a psychological theory of human motivation. Research behind this theory reveals that people are most motivated to achieve when they feel competent, connected and in control. Play Like A Champion relates those concepts to sport. Athletes feel competent when they set Goals and work to achieve them; they feel connected when they build positive Relationships in the sport environment; they feel in control when they have Ownership over their play and their team. These qualities will lead them to strive to put forth their best effort and Win.

This is covered in more depth in the Play Like a Champion Coaching Course available to all CYC Coaches.
