Responsibilities of a Captain

  1.  Prior to a quiz meet:
  • be a role-model by completing each deadline on time AND saying your review each week!!
  • be a role-model also by being a student of God’s Word that you are memorizing; meditate on His Word & try to put His Word into action
  • connect with each teammate weekly to be sure their deadlines are current, provide help if needed (strong encouragement may sometimes be needed here)
  • build relationships with teammates, showing an interest in their lives and prayer needs
  • if a team ‘costume’ is going to be used, to decide on this & prepare well in advance

 

  1. At a quiz meet:
  • the priority here is to make this a FUN experience for all, rookie quizzers will especially need help in understanding procedures, being encouraged to participate, and in being introduced to others
  • be a role-model once again by quizzing to the best of your ability, staying focused, challenging to defend your teammates whenever necessary, and at all times, maintaining a positive and encouraging attitude

 

  1. At all times:
  • be respectful of those in authority over you, whether it be your coach, any adult that gives of their time to listen to deadlines at practice, and the quizzing officials
  • show humility in your interactions with others
