Team Intangibles

The intangible rewards of being on a proper team.

If you’ve never been on a proper team, here are things you are missing out on.

  • Each thinks of the greater good for the team and puts team needs before individual needs.
  • Complete trust in one another.
  • Know there is an understanding between all that needs not to be uttered.
  • Never question another’s intentions or desire.
  • Belief that each is there to lift up and push each other ahead.
  • In spirit, we’re connected.
  • A smile, nod, or pat on the back means much more than others can fathom.
  • Recognition that each one brings unique gifts and talents and shares them freely.

These things and others that can’t be put into words bond us into what is truly a team. Greater than the sum of its parts, an entity that is an honor to be a part of.

A recap of our team winning the BCAPL Team Championships I wrote for a prior PoolSynergy column is here.

    if all captains and team members remembered all your points they would raise both their level of enjoyment and their performance.

    Mike, great points! Especially the note about the simple gestures. I know that when I receive a positive fist-bump from the veteran players on the team it’s so much more satisfying than a dissection of the rack with comments on select good shots only.
