Team Rules, Values, and Good Sportsmanship Defined by Coach Wooden

Coach Wooden Rules for Players:

  1. Always be a gentleman.
  2. Always be a team player.
  3. Always be on time whenever time is involved.
  4. Always be learning
  5. Always be earning the right to be proud or confident.
  6. Always keep emotions under control without losing fight or aggressiveness.
  7. Be spirited, not temperamental.
  8. Always work to improve, knowing you can never improve enough.

This has an achievement oriented bias (particularly in relationship to 5 and 8).  I’m not sure how to frame those, but overall this is a pretty decent list.
