Building Blocks of Leadership

From television, internet, and social media, today’s students are being bombarded with many and confusing messages. Without the proper foundation, our students can be influenced to make the wrong decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives.This book is intended to provide a foundation to our young men and women. With candid discussion and illustrations, our young men and women will have the opportunity to understand and apply valuable lessons that will serve as a foundation for life.

Captain’s Playbook

The Captains Playbook is a top level guide for the young men and women that have the ambition to be leaders, both on and off the athletic field. It is also designed for coaches that depend on captains to be the conduit to the players. Today’s captains have a monumental task of setting the proper example and making sure that their teammates are focused on the clear objectives and actions that will ensure success. They need to guide their teams through the distractions of social media and other daily pressures, and live up to the challenges of becoming the role models, one that  aspires to conduct himself in a manner that everyone will respect and admire.

Straight Talk

You have questions about how to conduct your life, but when you look around all you see are people whose actions seem questionable. Sports players, religious figures, politicians, and even friends all seem to make bad decisions. How, then, can you find out how to live in a way that will result in an exciting and productive life? Buck Martinez, who has worked with our youth for more than 40 years, hears questions every day about how to develop strong personal values, how to behave towards others, where to find the personal integrity to do the right thing when everyone else seems to just be going along for the ride
