After a great win on the men’s green weekend, it got me thinking about what winning means to me and / or the winning mentality.
It was a slow start for Sidmouth’s 1st team in terms of points in the standings, not in terms of performances which I want to see as a coach, but without a win it was stressing me out.
Everyone I know loves the feeling of winning, whether individually or as a team. It brings smiles to faces and pats on the back, something that in team sport is essential but at the same time tempered.
For example, if someone makes a tackle or the scrum wins a penalty, you will see the rest of the team celebrating at that point, they still won’t celebrate the action five minutes later, the team will have already moved on to the next job.
The same applies to week-to-week games, you celebrate wins and deal with losses, but when you’re next together you move on to the next challenge.

Winning is an important part of an athlete’s mindset and in golf you’ll see a dime a dozen people born to win. There aren’t many elite golfers in the world who settle for second place.
The US Ryder Cup winning team this weekend had 8 of the top 10 golfers in the world on board, a recipe for success. When Rory McIlroy spoke to the cameras after his last round knowing he hadn’t quite lived up to expectations, you see what winning means for a born winner, the emotion he showed to be a part of. a team that does not win tells me a lot about its character and its state of mind.
Confidence and belief are key traits to work on and develop when thinking about achievement or victory. Obviously, getting wins is extremely useful for the confidence and confidence of an individual or a team, but setting goals is also essential in helping to focus and ultimately achieve.
We haven’t spent enough time defining them and being clear on what we’re trying to accomplish at Sidmouth this year, so we’ll be in training this week, hoping to get some great player input and win. real clarity after a long absence. of the rugby union league.
Having been involved in the sport for so long, from a young child, victory is almost ingrained in me. While I think this attitude can differ from person to person, I find it hard to believe that someone doesn’t like to be successful in one form or another.
Watching my youngest take part in her first rugby session, I know she would love to win or score tries, but at her stage of sport, fun has to be the main goal, with a smile on her face.
