If you’re the coach of your child’s sports team or you’re the captain of a team at work or for intramural fun, here are a few ideas for huddles that your team can implement as motivation at practice and games.
A group huddle is a time for a team to gather close together in a circle to discuss and upcoming play or move in a competition. It is most common in sports events. A football coach named Amos Alonzo Stagg created the huddle in 1896 as a way of blocking out the racket from the crowd right before a play. The huddle is also a way to assure that all team members are on the same page and to get everyone motivated to do a good job.
