Article of the Month: Developing Creative Players, The Important Role Parents Play By: Giovanni Pacini
It is safe to say that we all know creativity when we see it; whether in a piece of art, in music, writing, or verbal expression. It might also be safe to say that most folks know creativity in sports when they see it as well. Whether it is LeBron James swirling his way to the basket through a myriad of defenders finishing with a slam dunk or Sydney Crosby stickhandling with exact precision and speed to leave defending skaters in his icy dust, and maybe in combination form with quarterback Tom Brady handing off to an end around running Julian Edelman who then passes downfield to Rob Gronkowski for a touchdown. Each of those represents a creative flair many times done instantaneously or by forethought. Nonetheless, each time we see it; we are left with not only a feeling of awe, but admiration of the ability to do something creative.
