Trinity Miller is a 6th grader at Harold Oliver. Goooo Otters! Trinity is a valuable player to the Oliver basketball team. Trinity has played in the past, tackle football and softball but this is her first time playing basketball. Even though it is only her first year, her talent and character radiates through the gym.
Trinity tells us that she strongly believes that sports are very important. She struggles with seeing her friends sitting down watching TV or being behind their phone screen. Trinity wants more people to be active and having fun playing sports. We are so proud of how mature she is and how she wants to be a positive influence on her team!
We developed the curriculum so that young people could learn skills, use those skills in game situations and most importantly, reach our youth development goals of providing them opportunities to develop and practice empathy, self-regulation and conflict resolution skills. After talking and observing Trinity, it is very clear that she is growing in these skills. The entire otters team was cheering on for their own team and the opposite one. They were great sports during the game.
Trinity loves her coach and has appreciated how much support she has revived from her. She learns a lot from her coach on how to act during games and in general. We can see that Trinity is using her empathy skills when she talk about teammates and other players. Trinity tells us that what’s most important to her is not to win but to get better. We are so proud of Trinity, and we THANK her coach for all the work she does.
