Athletic Team Building for Enhanced Skill Training

Team, Teammate, Self

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” – Michael Jordan


There’s no way around it – teamwork is essential to achieving any kind of success in athletics, and even some of the most talented athletes the world has ever seen, like Michael Jordan, realize the importance of teamwork just as coaches do. Coaches often stress the importance of teamwork and getting players to “buy-in” to their vision of the team but can struggle to do so. This is where our athletic team building and teamwork enhancement skill training can be a great help. APG athletic team building programs help a variety of teams and other athletic organizations get everyone – players, coaches, trainers, and other staff – to buy into the same vision of what the team can be and what they can achieve together.


With athletic team building from APG, teams of all sizes in all kinds of sports will develop the mental toughness, fortitude, and bonds necessary to compete and succeed at the championship level.

What Does Better Look Like?

Define your "Standard"

We start our athletic team building and teamwork enhancement skill training by helping teams define their “standard” with a series of thought-provoking questions. Armed with the answers to questions like, “What does it mean to be a [team name here]?” and “What do you expect of your teammates? What do they expect from you?” we help teams develop a “standard” that will serve as the bedrock of their identity moving forward. This portion of our athletic team building program serves as a stepping stone towards the total transformation of a group of individuals into a cohesive team.

Leadership At Every Level

This portion of the teamwork enhancement skill training program gets to the bottom of who and what guides your organization, who could be handling more, and who is handling too much. This information, combined with discussions and exercises specially designed for athletic team building, will prove to be an invaluable resource in determining your preferred leadership module and how to strengthen it over time.

Building Excellence From The Neck Up

Our teamwork enhancement skill training program has been created using a blend of Advanced Psychology Degrees, and inspiration from the training one of the greatest teams in the world undergoes – the US Navy SEALs. We equip our clients with specific strategies and tools to overcome adversity, manage complications, maximize player performance, and further their athletic team building long after our program.


The US Navy SEALs are often highly regarded as one of the best teams in the world. No matter the challenge, they rise to face it every time. Achieving this same recognition won’t happen overnight, but with APG’s Navy SEAL inspired team building program, your organization will have what it needs to create a team worthy of similar recognition.

Additional topics include:

  • Developing "The Standard"
  • Mental Toughness and Resilience
  • Target Leadership
  • Team Cohesion
  • Communication
  • "Killer Instinct"
  • Mentorship
  • High Stress Decision Making
  • Accountability
