Everyone would like to be the fastest or strongest player on the team.  However, there can only be one "fastest" and one "strongest" player.  For teams, this is actually a good thing because teams need different skills to be successful.  There are many areas in which players can excel and contribute to a team's efforts.  Players can aspire to be the player who is the:
  • Best at playing a position
  • Leader in team spirit and attitude
  • Hardest working
  • Most helpful and encouraging to other players
  • Least selfish in scoring situations
  • Best at a particular skill
  • Most knowledgeable about game situations
  • Most consistent from game to game
  • Best at defensive play
  • Best at scrambling for goals or points
These are just a few of the many different needs that teams have.  Teams need players to fill a variety of  roles in order to win games.  Just because a player isn't the fastest or strongest player on the team, doesn't mean that a player won't have plenty of opportunity to become one of the most valuable.
