Abstract

Athletes and coaches at every level of sports must face transitions at some
point in their careers. Rituals are powerful tools for teams navigating
transitions. When chosen thoughtfully, performed honestly and sincerely,
and followed with time for reflection, rituals can lead to transformation and
character growth in athletes’ lives even beyond their sports experience.
