What does the cycle of Virtues look like?

There are 104 virtues in the cycle. There is a sample chart on the following page. The “seasons” do not follow one another exactly. The “seasons” rotate in such a fashion that the virtues are taught in all of the different sports seasons of the year.

VIRTUE OF THE WEEK - CHARITY

INTRODUCTION TO START PRACTICE/GAME

Our virtue this week is CHARITY - The strength to do good for others.

If we do that we will be a better team and we’ll have a lot more fun this season.

STORY TO TELL IMMEDIATELY AFTER PRAYER

Brian and Sally 

One very dark, cold and rainy night there was an elderly lady who was driving home when she got a flat tire. She didn’t have her cell phone with her and it was really raining hard. She was scared. She had only been waiting for a few minutes when a man, let’s call him “Brian,” pulled up behind her. He went up to her win- dow and asked if she needed any help. She was very grateful.

She popped the trunk and Brian did the rest. He put on the small “donut tire” she had in the trunk and told her she would need to get a new one in the morning. She was extremely grateful and wanted to give him a sizable donation being that she was very wealthy. Brian would not accept it.

He just told her to please do something nice for some- one in need she meets in the near future.

They went their separate ways. Brian drove home and the lady stopped by a small restaurant to get a cup of coffee.

Inside there was only one waitress. She was a beautiful young lady who was pregnant and really showing signs of being tired and worn out. Let’s call her “Sally.”

As Sally served the lady some coffee she tried to smile and be as pleasant as possible even though it was really hard for her.

As the lady finished her coffee she remembered Brian’s request – do something nice for someone in need. She decided to leave her the sizable donation she was going to give to Brian as a tip.

When Sally found the tip she immediately gave thanks. She and her husband needed that money so much since they were going through some pretty tough times.

She drove home all excited to tell her husband the good news. She sat down next to him and said, “Brian, you’ll never guess what happened to me tonight!”

QUESTION TO ENGAGE PLAYERS

Both Brian and Sally were focused on others and not themselves. Give some examples of how we can do that here at practice or during our game this week

RESOLUTION TO WORK ON DURING PRACTICE/GAME

Let’s practice the virtue of CHARITY right now by praising our teammates when they do something great.

Coach, look for players praising teammates and congratulate them for living the virtue of CHARITY right then and there when you see/hear it.

MENTORING MOMENT TO SHOW YOUR PLAYERS YOU CARE ABOUT THEM

Ask individually as many players as you can during practice/game the below:

Tell me about why you chose to play this sport

Tell me about your favorite class in school
