Strengths and Weaknesses

By July 16, 2015 November 19th, 2020 No Comments

Do you know what your strength and weaknesses are? It’s not that easy to pinpoint, but sometimes it is. Let’s talk about on the court!

Coaches always critique their athletes. Being critiqued comes with the territory of being an athlete. Athletes will always be their own worst critic because they know their ability and 9 times out of 10, they will always see room for improvement. Collegiate athletes usually start their sport at a very young age so being critiqued from that time until college are a lot of years being told your strengths and weaknesses.

My experience in college was interesting when it came to being critiqued. It’s definitely a hard thing to go through, but for some it isn’t. My coach always took the time out to let us know how we can get better. It’s frustrating once you feel like you aren’t reaching your potential. How do you cope with that? As athletes, you’re use to getting feedback all yours lives whether it’s good or bad. What happens when you aren’t playing sports anymore and you don’t hear that constant feedback on how you are doing?

Game Theory Group has an assessment called Next Play Pro, that can help you find a solution. Our team of PhD’s developed this assessment to help the student-athlete transition away from their sport. This experience is way more detrimental than people realize. We broke it down into 8 main categories that student-athletes will struggle with as they transition away from their sport. Structure, Feedback, Identity, Status, Camaraderie, Support, Stewardship, and Competition.
