Mastery Approach (ELM)
Winning on the scoreboard is not the only way to win. A Mastery Approach to sport creates winning character traits in youth and high school athletes. At the center of Positive Coaching Alliance’s Mastery Approach is the acronym ELM for Effort, Learning and Mistakes are OK. Coaches and parents can help athletes understand that as long as they give their best effort, continue to learn and are not afraid of mistake, they are more likely to win on the scoreboard and in life.
