“Sixty percent of what you teach applies to everybody. The trick is how you get that sixty percent to the person. If I teach you, I’m concerned about what you think and how you think. I want to teach you how to learn in a way that’s right for you. My greatest challenge is not teaching Tom Brady but some guy who can’t do it at all, and getting them to a point where they can. Now that is coaching.”
“Treating success as an option is one of the major reasons why more people don’t create it for themselves – and why most people don’t even get close to living up to their full potential…
If you don’t consider it your duty to live up to your potential, then you simply won’t. If it doesn’t become an ethical issue for you, then you won’t feel obligated and driven to fulfill your capacity.”
Tia and her team had a great season of basketball in 2014/2015. Tia was the point guard of the team and is looking forward to entering high school next year to play at the next level. This summer she is playing for Basketball Alberta again on the U16 Girls team. They will be playing in the Seattle Summer Showcase from July 10-12, 2015 and then will be headed north to Langley BC for some exhibition games. After these games their next big event is the Western Canadian Summer Games in Wood Buffalo AB that begin on August 7.
This is a highlight video of Tia with her Grade 9 Cardston Cougar Team.
This spring Tia also made the University of Lethbridge PEBL (Prairie Elite Basketball League) U17 team. Unfortunately during their first tournament at the University of Alberta she broke a bone in her leg and didn’t get to play the entire season. But this video shows some highlights from her first couple games at the UofA tournament. She’s excited to be healed up and ready for Alberta Ball now. (She is #3 on the blue and white team)
