Spin a Loss Into a Win
Every squad, whether it's on the competition mat or on the sidelines, will face a loss at one point or another. While it's not the best feeling, there are ways to find the positives and grow from the experience.
Dealing with Sore Winners
It's hard enough to lose and it's even worse when the winning squad rubs it in your face. Don't let their immaturity and sore winning get you down and, whatever you do, don't stoop to their level.
Discipline without Bullying
What sets an average coach from a great coach is the ability to discipline without bullying. A coach must earn the squad's respect by treating the squad with respect in return.
Tips for Parents
Parents just want to do what's best for their kid, but sometimes, good intentions lead to bad outcomes. Focus on the right things to say and ask your cheerleader after a loss.
