The word of the week for the next two weeks is commitment. Commitment was chosen by SSWSC HP mogul skier Maggie Ryan, who said, “being committed to a sport is time consuming, but if you love what you do, showing commitment is and never has been a burden.” We’re in the heart of our season, and her comment about commitment not being a burden is pertinent for this time of year. If you love what you do, commitment is easier. If you are focused on your goals, commitment is more natural. If as coaches, we clearly communicate the purpose for each training session, it is much more likely our athletes will commit to the task at hand.
