Spring Athletics – At Tahoe Expedition Academy our teacher-coach model and select programming prioritizes having fun and enjoying athletics first. Then student-athletes are coached on; utilizing pre-match nerves as energy, positive self-talk and enjoying the process, and not over-prioritizing the result.
Be a warrior, not a worrier. Nike’s ‘Just Do It’ tagline, is the embodiment of the optimal student-athlete mindset. Don’t overthink it, don’t over worry it, ‘Just Do It’. First time nordic skiers embrace this moniker throughout their first season on skate skis. Similarly, veterans on the nordic race course have learned to take a deep breath, relax and let their training take over.
Learning through athletics, competing against peers, and strengthening interpersonal and team bonds through collaboration and teamwork results in typically healthy, happy and well-rounded student-athletes.
