In the name of Constant and Never-ending Improvement (CANI), Olé Carpool – Commuter Classroom is a weekly news segment we will be running for Olé parents and players. Whether your family’s commute to Porirua is just 5 minutes (Whitby) or 90 minutes (Wairarapa), the drive to training allows an incredible opportunity to tune in, listen and learn together.
Carpool – Commuter Classroom features podcasts, video blogs and media that the Olé staff and Young Olé players (ages 15 – 18) use in their weekly mentorship discussions and round table series. The intention of Olé Carpool – Commuter Classroom content is to bring parents and families along the educational ride of youth player and personal development, as well as provide insight into day to day academy conversations.
We hope you enjoy this week’s YouTube video, Teaching a Growth Mindset: Unleashing the Learning Machine from Trevor Ragan at TRAINUGLY. Train Ugly is one of our favourite educational resources. There is always an opportunity to speak with your child or young Olé player about the importance of having a Growth Mindset. The below video is a great lesson for children, adults too. Where do you have a fixed mindset and where would it help you to adopt a growth mindset? Always remember the power of the word YET! Can’t does not exist in our vocabulary at Olé F.A.
