Why NAFBF


Why NAFBF
John Wooden said "Sports don’t build character, they reveal it."  Other ways of saying that might be, “Sports reveal the character that coaches build in them, Sports provide the avenues where character can be revealed, or Character development is possible on the sport’s fields.” It is not sport that develops character, adults around the games develop the character in youth through the issues that sport present.

At NAFBF, we stress the development of character in our players. We provide them with tools that they can utilize in a self-help fashion. But the coach, the Affiliate Owner, the adults surrounding the athlete still have the greatest influence.

Affiliate Owners can teach

* Belief in Self – Through frustration and self-doubt, coaches teach players to  believe in themselves through thick and thin
* Belief in the whole – coaching teamwork by trusting in each other and having each other’s back is crucial to learning to work with others.
* Perseverance – often, there is more failure in baseball than success, so teaching a never give up attitude is important.
* Responsibility – coaching players to own up to their mistakes goes a long way in the maturation process of kids.
* Importance of communication – coaching kids to be themselves without fear of expressing themselves is another important coaching possibility.

When it comes to sports, NAFBF believes you have the opportunity to teach young people so many thing besides how to win. He believes it is an opportunity to teach them how to be a good person as well.
