The purpose of this workshop is to present a structured pedagogical process for developing a list of athlete expectations and a code of conduct for athletes or “team credo.” Workshop participants will create a team credo, explore what expectations are athlete-centered and correspond to that credo, discuss ways to communicate the team credo and expectations of athletes, and develop strategies for administering consequences for lack of adherence.
