UPPER MONTCLAIR – Great talent doesn’t always win. A great team culture almost always does. So how do teams (no matter what level) become strong and unified and the absolute best they can be?
Three of New Jersey’s most accomplished sports figures – basketball Hall of Famer Bob Hurley Sr., two-time Super Bowl champion Chris Snee and Rutgers wrestling coach Scott Goodale – will share their insights in “Building A Championship Culture” on August 25 at 7 p.m. at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center, the first of a town hall series of topical sports issues.
The series, presented by Parabolic Performance & Rehab, a leading sports performance training and physical therapy practice, is ideal for student-athletes, parents, coaches and athletic directors, who can customize the concepts for themselves and their teams.
One of America’s most legendary high school basketball coaches, Hurley is a Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer who last year led St. Anthony of Jersey City to its 28th state championship. Snee, who spent his entire 10-year NFL career with the Giants, is a two-time Super Bowl champion and four-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman. Goodale has brought Rutgers wrestling to national prominence, compiling a .737 winning percentage (141-50-1) in his nine collegiate seasons. Prior to coming to RU, Goodale was a three-time New Jersey Coach of the Year at Jackson Memorial High School.
Each will share their experiences about winning environments, and answer questions from the audience. Following “Building a Championship Culture,” will be “Maximizing the Youth Sports Experience,” in October with panelists TBA. Tickets for each program are $15 and $10 for students.
