have been using "The Captain" for the past five
years. It is my experience with coaching athletes
that they all play their best when positively
motivated. The problem is that it's hard to find
things that will motivate all players throughout the
year. I have never found any item that was a
better motivational tool for players than "The
Captain." I could not imagine coaching a team at
any level without this tool to support my coaching
Coaches can adapt it to their coaching
style, player level, and desired outcome. I know
many coaches that swear by "The Captain," yet we each
have a slightly different method in which we use the
product. I have never met a coach that, once
they've tried the product, felt that it wasn't helpful
in the individual's or team's performance.

I use "The Captain" as the
letters for my captains. I like the fact they are easily
removable vs. sewn on the jerseys. I think your
philosophy was executed by an NHL team last year (Minnesota?)
who rotated the captain based on performance and leadership
skills. There are so many different ways to use your system
and philosophy - it's great. This season at Novi High School
the players will be electing Captains and wearing your letters.

I used The Captain last season with my PeeWee team.
I used it as an incentive / recognition award for my
players. From the first time we used the letters,
they were an instant hit. The players and their parents
loved the idea and the effect. There were many compliments
throughout the season from the parents of my team and
people from other teams. Before each game, as part of our
pre-game talk, I would announce the names of the players
receiving the letters for that game and also the reason
why they earned the recognition. Initially not knowing
what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by the actions
of the players............cheering and clapping for the
recipients that day and every game thereafter. For those
players wearing the C and the A - there was no doubt that
just by wearing the letter, it helped to step up their
game.........either the added responsibility, the
recognition, the extra confidence.......whatever it was,
this was something that helped to motivate them. If a
player missed a practice during the week, they were not
eligible to wear a letter during the upcoming weekend
games. Wearing the letters always had a positive effect
on each player.

I used 'The Captain'
system all year. The players waited with great
anticipation for me to choose the Captain and Assistants
before each game so they could have the letters snapped
on. As you know, before I learned of your system, I used
tape to make the "C" and "A" for the players for each
game. So I am a long "believer" in the positives this
system provides. During the year I often gave your name
and company contacts out to other coaches who asked
where I got my Captain

Both seasons my son played for Coach Bardy, "The
Captain" program was used with great success. It
motivated the players and gave them a very visible
reward for their effort. They knew that they did not
have to be the big scorer to earn the "C" or "A". They
just had to work hard in practices and games, be a team
player and show improvement.
At the end of the
season both sets of letters were given to the players
that had earned them for their play for the season as a
whole. My son was extremely proud that he was given a
letter at the team banquet. He still has it today with
his hockey memorabilia...Thanks

I have used "The Captain" for 8 Hockey
seasons and couldn't imagine entering a game without
it! "The Captain" allows me to give all the
players on my team the opportunity to lead both in the
locker room and on the ice. I encourage the
Captains and Assistant Captains to address the team as
well as lead by example.
The fact that "The Captain" is re
attachable gives you the ultimate flexibility to rotate
the leadership roles. I absolutely love the
product and the opportunities it
