    5. Pick of the Week

    Each week, I'll highlight an article that I think is really useful. The article will be available to non-members of the website for a week, and to members forever!

    This week's pick is: "Video: Sport Psychology: Icebreakers: Peek-A-Who"

    Peek-A-Who (aka the Blanket Name Game) is a great icebreaker for classes or teams that are just beginning their season. It's an excellent way to learn everyone's name. This article includes a written explanation plus a video demonstration.
