Recently, England Women’s cricket team has overcome losing their first three games in the World Cup to then go on to reach the semi finals which take place on Thursday. This is a great example of resilience in sport and this should be and sometimes is influenced and emphasised at school level as well. As Mr Manley, Director of Sport at Richard Challoner School, said “ Winners never quit, quitters never win” and also “ It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog”. Both of these quotes can be analysed in many different ways and these quotes can be called inspirational easily when these are said at half time when you are losing in the game. It is vital that resilience is shown because there is evidence that even if you’re losing regardless of how much time you have left, there is always an opportunity to overturn the result. Sir Alex Ferguson is also a prime example and the 1999 treble season springs to mind where Manchester United scored two goals in stoppage time going on to win the Treble. If resilience is emphasised from a young age then anything is possible and that skill will be more easily maintained in the future. Therefore, it is vital that those involved in coaching sport to students ( especially secondary school) need to place an emphasis on students being resilient within sporting fixtures regardless of what the current score is.
